There were pubs on every corner where one could order a hot toddy or mulled wine (or apple cider for those not inclined to drink). Unfortunately they ran out of bangers and mash by the time we were ready for our dinner.
We saw a few different acts this year, some we weren't too impressed with (the saloon-type of entertainment). We sat through a reading of the Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and witnessed a portion of Oliver Twist being reenacted. I really enjoyed the very end when everyone gathered together and sang the "Hallelujah Chorus" and "We Wish You a Merry Christmas." Chris's favorite once again was the Brass Farthing singers.
