Lord of Misrule Storytelling Tours 10:00 am – 4:00 pm with Corfe Castle’s ‘Lord of Misrule’.

Far back in the time, the Lord of Misrule was chosen to oversee the fun and frivolity of the Christmas feast. Swapping places with the lord of the manor, they had complete power over all the guests in choosing the games, dances and other entertainments.

Step back to the 17th century where our very own Lord of Misrule will take you on an interactive journey through the ruins of the castle and teach you the games, dances, stories and Christmas traditions of days gone by.
