A heart-warming Christmas story for all the family, set at the court of Queen Elizabeth I and performed around the palace, from the Tudor Kitchens to the Great Hall. Witness as this touching tale unfolds throughout the day, full of music, dance and festive fun.

Queen Elizabeth I and her court are at Hampton Court Palace for the festive season. The pressure is on for the Queen’s Master of Revels, Edmund Tilney, to arrange a celebration to remember. However when disaster strikes he must turn to an unlikely place for a solution. Is all lost, or will it be a Christmas to remember?

Join us as courtiers, musicians, and jesters will be filling the palace courtyards and rooms with music, drama and laughter.
