Spend an evening with the Madrigal Singers, dining by candlelight, toasting one another with golden wassail, and listening to the sounds of the season as they were presented in 16th Century England.

Announced by brass fanfare, the evening's festivities will begin with the traditional procession of the Royal Court followed by the Wassail Bowl, and of course, the Boar's Head. Also included in the evening's entertainment will be the court beggar, the Royal Court Jesters and Queen Elizabeth (portrayed by Terry Rabe), the royal recorder consort and the sounds of the Christmas season as performed by the Madrigal Singers. The meal will consist of the traditional 9-course Renaissance Feaste, including the ever-famous flaming plum pudding.
