Humbug! “I was hoping the good people of East Anglia would have more sense than to celebrate Christmas!”
Ebenezer Scrooge is visiting Aunt Scratchitt in East Anglia, hoping to escape from the good cheer and festivities in London. Alas, he finds the season of goodwill has arrived here too!
Join Aunt Scratchitt as she takes her ‘favourite’ Uncle for a gentle pre-supper walking tour through the streets of her home town and tries to give him the festive spirit with tales of Christmas past, present and future. Will you be able to cheer him up with your Christmas Spirit? Or will you agree with Mr Scrooge? Humbug!
The Ancient Wool Town of Lavenham is said to be the best preserved medieval town in Britain, with its impressive Guildhall and ancient timber-framed houses that line the narrow streets. In Tudor times the town was one of the wealthiest in England and home to Thomas Spring III, the wealthiest Commoner in England.
Arrive before 3pm for a hot drink (included) at The Cock Horse, Lavenham. This olde worlde thatched pub was built in 1953 to replace the proper old inn on the site. It’s awfully smart now – Scrooge will be furious!
Aunt Scratchitt will get him to warm his cockles with a touch of the strong stuff before we light the lanterns and take a walk at dusk through one of Britain’s most attractive villages. Lovely old Lavenham positively sparkles by lantern light and the good cheer of the people in their wonky houses is bound to annoy Mr Scrooge even further. Be prepared for a light hearted evening that will put a festive smile on your faces.
We return to the Cock Horse Inn for a two course supper at 5.30pm. Please pre-order your main course and dessert from the choice from the menu tab.
