The grand Christmas Revels performed at the Inns of Court were spectacular events. They have proved to be a very rich resource for cultural historians seeking to understand how a civic identity took shape at the Inns in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This lecture will explore the range of individuals and professions that took part in these revels in order to re-assess our understanding of the early modern Inns of Court as a community.Followed by a drinks reception
