In the lush and verdant fenland of the Eastern marches of Insulae Draconis, from whence of old the seafaring Danes and the fierce Angles did make war on Albion, peacefully now dwell the loyal and gentle folk of Flintheathshire.
These fine folk have bethought themselves to invite one and all to their hearth to escape the cold and to light up the dark with laughter and music and feasting, to join them in their ancient festival of Yule at The Bidwell Centre in Thetford Forest, Southern Norfolk from Friday the 12th December at 1700 closing on Sunday the 14th December at 1300.
There will be a tourney for the fabled red sash, to be presented to the lady of the winning fighter, the hall will be seasonally and most artfully decorated by Milady Agatha and a fine repast in the manner of a country gentleman will be most plentifully and heartily provided and will include the roast hog of song and canticle and the traditional goose.
All minstrels and troubadours are requested to direct their steps to Thetford Forest that there may be a pleasant evening of music and dancing had by all.
