The Christmas season in Elizabethan Devon was transformed from the Catholic traditions of the early 1500s to the Puritans’ restrictions a century later. Documentary evidence illustrates how life carried on in Devon during Elizabeth’s long reign.

Historian and author Todd Gray shows how church fittings provided a visual backdrop to the festivities. He describes a period with church, family and celebration – and without holiday cards, Christmas trees or outdoor festive lighting.
