Our last event of 2017 was a Christmas extravaganza at St Anthony’s Hall, York, featuring dramatic readings by local theatre group Ars Ludendi. Their theme was the origin of Christmas traditions and it was illustrated by hilarious extracts from plays and books, from the Second Shepherds Play from the Wakefield cycle of mystery plays, through Victorian melodrama to Just William! Seasonal refreshments and winter punch were served and a good time was had by all.
York St John University will be closed from Thursday 21st December until Wednesday 3rd January, so mail addressed to PLACE will not be collected during this period.
A full programme of events from February onwards will be published in the new year, along with the next newsletter. We wish all our members a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.
