This winter at Shakespeare's Birthplace they are preparing for Christmas with floral displays and a glass of Wassail.

Christmas at Shakespeare’s Birthplace kicks off with Mary Arden: Town And Country - Preparing For Christmas (Mon 25 & Sat 30  November). Shakespeare’s mother was a country girl who, upon her marriage to the bard’s dad, John, had to acclimatise to life in the town. But how did preparations for the festive season differ between town and country? House stewards from Shakespeare’s Birthplace and Mary Arden’s Farm offer an insight into Mary’s changing yuletide traditions...

December attractions at the venue, meanwhile, include Flowers Of Winter (Sat 14 December - Sun 5 January) - an exhibition of floral displays inspired by traditional winter blooms - and Come A-Wassailing (Mon 30 December - Wed 1 January) - a chance to participate in the precursor to the modern-day activity of carol singing.
