Church offers Boar’s Head Christmas Festival

Peace Lutheran Church, 737 Barracksview Road, once again will offer its Boar’s Head Christmas Festival.

An elegantly costumed cast of 150, four choirs and period instrumentalists will recreate the 1340s Christmas pageant at Queen’s College in Oxford, England.

The feudal king serves as host of the pageant, which celebrates the birth of Jesus with knights, beefeaters, lords, ladies and jesters.

The Boar’s Head Christmas Festival will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 30, Dec. 1, Dec. 2 and Dec. 3 with an additional presentation at 4 p.m. Dec. 3.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for each evening performance and at 3 p.m. for the afternoon performance.

Free tickets, which are necessary for admittance, will be available beginning at 8 a.m. Nov. 1 by calling the church office at (314) 892-5610.
