Renaissance Revel

Greetings, my lords and ladies!
We most cordially invite you to help us celebrate the Feast of St Nicholas with a Renaissance Revel in St Paul's Cathedral Crypt. There will be plenty of medieval and renaissance carols, live music, convivial company, and lots of period dancing from a dazzling array of local dance groups. There will also be an informal class before the event for anyone wishing to learn some simple period dances - beginners welcome, and encouraged! Non-dancers are also very welcome to just sit back and enjoy the music. Feel free to dress up in costume, or come just as you are.
WHEN: Friday 4 December
WHERE: St Paul's Cathedral Crypt (through the carpark at the back of the cathedral to the large wooden doors on the left hand side of the building looking towards the Octagon)
WHAT TIME: Dance class 5.30-6.30pm (come along and have a go!)
COST: $10 for adults, $5 for performers (i.e. members of Rare Byrds, the Playford Group, Jack Frost Morris, Les Belles Vilaines and the Scottish Country dance group). Children free and most welcome. We ask that everyone bring a small plate of finger food to share.
WHO CAN COME: Anyone who likes the idea of a renaissance party! Feel free to bring family and friends along.
