Twelfth Night Celebrations

By December 30, 2013

Follow me on:

Twelfth Night is an annual seasonal celebration held outside the Shakespeare's Globe, near Tate Modern, to mark the end of Christmas and welcome the New Year, mixing ancient seasonal customs with contemporary festivity. It is free, accessible to all and happens whatever the weather.

I saw this for the first time a couple of years ago and was surprised how popular it was. I was lucky enough to be right at the front for the Mummer's Play where the actors performed a freestyle Folk Combat Play of St. George, featuring the Turkey Sniper, Clever Legs, the Old 'Oss and many others. It was true family fun and I laughed loads. See my photos and find out more about this great tradition: Twelfth Night Festival Gallery.
