Love Lucy Worsley

Updated: Feb 22

Lucy Worsley's 12 Days of Tudor Christmas

Lucy Worsley has made many fascinating documentaries of England's past, many have appeared on PBS and local TV, she is a historian and has a position with England's National Trust. Worsley recreates how Christmas was celebrated during the age of Henry VIII, eating, drinking and dancing. Food historian Annie Gray assists her to prepare 2 royal feasts during Henry's reign. Dressed as Henry she doesn't enjoy boar's head - particularly the snout. Later she assists in the kitchens of Hampton Court to make mince pie, sugar chess men and Christmas cake. Henry demanded his followers present him with presents, usually money and Worsley is given a boar spear presented by one of Henry's many wives. There is ample singing even of written by Henry. She is visited by people dressed up and masked who come to partake of some drink, this custom is still celebrated down east in Newfoundland. She dances at one of the parties and enjoys a wonderful buffet. Great and interesting insight into some of Christmas traditions.
