Time to get Festive in Britain's First 'Christmas City' - YORK
Is York really England's most Christmassy City? Is it true that it held the first ever Christmas Celebrations exactly 1500 years ago in 521AD? Where did Rudolph get his Red Nose from? Which Grinch tried to cancel Christmas? and Which famous author read his stories in York and made us a present of Boxing Day?
Banish all thoughts of recent times as we hear tales of Christmas Past, from the bacchanalian celebrations of Roman Britain to the Midwinter Feasts of the Vikings. They have all left their mark on our festivities today
Come and get into the spirit of things in Britain's original Christmas City - and who knows? - we might even find some takeaway mulled wine!
