An Elizabethan Christmas at Lleweni Hall

Saturday 31 December 2005 13:00-14:00 (Radio 3)

Organizing a Christmas party always involves writing lists, normally thrown out with the dead crackers. But when a list of party tunes was scribbled in a book of Welsh poetry in the 1590s, a tantalizing glimpse into Tudor life was preserved.

Catherine Bott talks to Sally Harper about this fascinating blend of ancient Welsh and modern Tudor culture.
