Not Quite a Ceilidh 2017

EMMA CNUTCelebrating the Royal Wedding of the Millenniun – 1017

The marriage of King Canute to Queen Emma was the most significant (and most forgotten) event of English history. 

A Danish King and a Norman Queen created Britain as a one nation state and led to the union of England, Denmark and Norway. A sort of alternative European Union which we will refer to as the DNA union – the union of the Danish, Norwegian and Anglo-Saxon peoples.  If you call yourself British – what’s your DNA?

Friday 27th Oct 2017  18.00


The most well known story of King Canute and Queen Emma refers to the incident with the waves. Here is Marriott Edgar’s take on the story

The NQaC evening starts with a dramatic reading of The Royal Wedding of 1017, our own play celebrating the 1000th anniversary of the marriage of King Canute and Queen Emma (1017-2017).

At the end of the evening we will test your DNA.
