Twelfth Night is an age old tradition that certainly didn’t start during the Victorian times, but it gained notoriety during then. It became such a scene that Queen Victoria outlawed it entirely, even after she had participated in many Twelfth Nights herself.
January 5, we are bringing it back. The food, the drink, the games, and the sounds (minus the dancing and Shakespearean references) We are adding to it the music of Valentine Wolfe, and they are bringing a professional storyteller with them to weave tales of ghosts and spirits for a unique experience.
Upstairs in the Historic Wynne-Russell House, we will run games from 7-9pm, until it’s time for the Valentine Wolfe and storyteller entertainment. We will serve hors d’oeuvres, sweets, wine, and other non-alcoholic beverages including wassail. Our featured food that evening is a Twelfth Night cake that contains 1 pea and 1 bean.. the recipients of either will be crowned King and Queen of Twelfth Night.
Geek Behind the Lens will be taking portraits of all attendants from 7-9pm. You can see images from the Night of Victorian Spiritualism from her by clicking here.
After purchasing, you will receive your ticket in the mail; it will be in the form of a pin. Each ticket receives a pin. They are custom-made for each of our events, and not sold any where else.
