Twelfth Night Dinner at Jones Mansion 6:00 pm
Twelfth Night Dinner at Jones Mansion @ Jones Mansion
Jan 7 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Brent Alan Burington makes his return to the Jones Mansion to provide after-dinner entertainment for the Twelfth Night celebration from 6-10 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 7. Traditionally one of the biggest nights on the social calendar in Victorian times, Twelfth Night honored the end of the 12 days of Christmas and signaled the return to work the next day. Visitors will be greeted with a warm cup of wassail, followed by a four-course yuletide-themed dinner that will be prepared by the Bistro on Main, complete with wine and special coffees. Guests are encouraged to dress in their best holiday attire. Burington, a professional actor from Columbus, will present a one-person performance of “Oliver Twist” to follow the meal. He showed his acclaimed one-person rendition of “A Christmas Carol” at the mansion’s Twelfth Night event last year. Tickets are $75 per person or $140 per couple, and they are available in limited quantity by calling 419-427-5915 (leave a message), using the event dropbox located on the front porch of the mansion, or stopping by the mansion on Monday evenings from 5:30-7 p.m. Tickets are available until Wednesday, Jan. 4. Proceeds from this event will go toward the continued restoration and upkeep of the mansion.
