The Feast of Sir John Barleycorn - The Masque in honor of John Barleycorn



The masque at the feast of john Barleycorn this year was expected to be the story of how John Barleycorn was Knighted.

Things have changed though as we are sharing the story of how John Barleycorn was captured and held for ransom while he was traveling back from the crusades. The story is full of wit, of wonder, and of the unique character that is John Barleycorn!

This tradition of a Masque at feast is many years old (with a year off here and there) but has been an amazing chance to celebrate culture, comedy and our very own old John Barleycorn!
