Ebenezer warmly invites you to our invite-only Christmas Fandango
A big thank you to everyone who has helped
We are so grateful to the Friends of Ebenezer, to all our speakers and to everyone who has helped us settle into the Seed Factory that we would love YOU to come to our party
To entertain us:
The inspirational Charles Hazlewood will teach us to sing a Somerset carol...
The sublime cellist, Emily Burridge will play Bach by candlelight
The unbearably exotic Ivor Disney will lead some belly dancing (participation optional)
The pulse-quickening Cara Campbell will DJ
And there will be more carol singing, made bearable by the drinking of hot cider and forgotten about by dancing into the night
At The Ebenezer, in the Seed Factory, Aller, TA10 0QN.
Please RSVP asap: email@example.com
Please bring bottles and your dancing shoes
There will be food but don't come hungry!
One should always be drunk. That’s the great thing; the only question. Not to feel the horrible burden of Time weighing on your shoulders and bowing you the Earth, you should be drunk without respite.
Drunk with what? With wine, with poetry or with virtue, as you please. But get drunk.
And if sometimes you should happen to awake, on the stairs of a palace, on the green grass of a ditch, in the dreary solitude of your own room, and find that your drunkenness is ebbing or has vanished, ask the wind and the wave, ask star, bird or clock, ask everything that flies, everything that moans, everything that flows, everything that sings, everything that speaks, ask them the time; and the wind, the wave, the star, the bird and the clock will all reply:
It is Time to get drunk! If you are not to be the martyred slaves of Time, be perpetually drunk! With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you please._
