Welcome to Christmas @ Stanford.
Introducing our Outdoor Christmas Parties for you and five of your favourite friends, family or work colleagues in a VIP Christmas Cabin. You will enjoy a wonderful hot 2 course meal consisting of beautiful Ogleshield cheese from Somerset, smothered over Hereford Steak, Sausage, Salt Beef or Portobello Mushrooms…add baby roast potatoes and you’re onto a winner…all meat home grown, made and cured and washed down with hot mulled wine.
If you are celebrating a birthday let us know for a free bottle of Prosecco!
We have called upon some local bands to get you into the party spirit they are The Weekenders / Good to Go / Amy Winehouse Tribute / The Ronaldos / Libby Gliksman & Andy O’Brien. Add that with our resident DJ Lady Heidi, expect Maria Carey Sandwiched between Wham and Michael Buble and we have a perfect recipe for a Covid safe, secure and fun way to enjoy Christmas.
For our ancestors, the rising of the sun, the returning of the moon and the birth of spring were all magical. Goddesses gave a human shape to these wonders – Mayahuel means ‘maguey plant’, Inanna, ‘sky woman,’ Parvati, ‘of the mountains’ and Aphrodite ‘foam of the wave.’ All over the world people danced, sang and acted out their goddesses’ stories to persuade nature to keep on doing her thing.
As each country, culture and human being are different, so is each goddess. But they tend to love, represent and symbolise the same things: earth, air, fire, water, snakes and birds to name a few. These symbols overlap, linking the tales of goddesses and heroines in a continuous chain from one generation to the next.
‘Dea Reckoning’ is an oracle inspired show based on 13 goddesses and heroines for the 13 months of the lunar year. The audience will sculpt the direction of the performance by choosing which deities will grace the stage.
‘Gresham unfolds each story like the petals of a lotus. At the end you leave with something beautiful created in your own mind.’ British Theatre Review.
40 fantastic stalls of locally produced high quality food, drink and craft to fulfil all your needs for Christmas.
The stallholders attend Shrewsbury throughout the year at the monthly Farmers Market and Made In Shropshire craft events.
The market will have social distancing measures in place for safety.
The Elf who forgot about Christmas
Come and join our elves for bit of festive cheer! Meet Jolly, Giggles & Happy Socks as they prepare for Christmas. They’ll stop by your cabin to say hello and play some silly games, sing some songs and give you your Elf report to decide if you’re naughty or nice!
Then settle in, get cosy and prepare to watch our show. Our Head Elf Jolly is about to go on a magical journey, she just doesn’t know it yet. Clap along as you meet Simon the Snowman, Tommy the toy solider and Fifi the Fairy and help Jolly understand what Christmas is really all about.
This interactive musical performance is fun for all the family and is guaranteed to bring a bit of sparkle to your day, so get your family together, bring in the grandparents and all enjoy Christmas 2020 at these Covid Safe Outdoor Christmas Parties.
