“Twas the night before a Tudor Christmas - telling a Christmas tale" December is a busy time for local historian, speaker and award winning author Rosemary Griggs. She’s out and about bringing the festivities and fun of a Tudor Christmas to groups all over Devon. You can catch up with her at Newton Abbot Town and GWR Museum on Saturday 10 December at 11 am. She’ll be entertaining children of all ages with tales of Tudor Christmas and reading a story from a new children’s book by Laura Loney which gives a new slant on a well known tale.
Appearing in full period costume as Katherine Raleigh, mother to Sir Walter Raleigh, speaker and award-winning author Rosemary Griggs will bring a flavour of the festivities, feasting and fun of a Tudor Christmas to the Jubilee Hall, Stoke Canon - next door to the Inn - at 7.30pm on Friday 9 December 2022. The Stoke Canon Inn is an award winning, friendly, community owned and community run pub staffed by volunteers. Receiving the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in 2020 and having survived COVID lockdown, it now faces a challenging winter with unknown price rises not only for energy but also for beer and other supplies. Sir Walter raised many a tankard in Devon’s Inns and would be delighted to see his mother supporting such a fine hostelry.
