Event Details

Are you an anglophile, enjoying all things British? Then, this is for you: Join former UK resident and lifelong Anglophile Claire Evans for a cultural tour of Christmas in Great Britain. 

Sign up for Celebrating the Holidays, British Style 

Claire will be your culinary travel guide to what special food and drink appear at the holiday table, with authentic recipes to try at home. And it wouldn’t be a British Christmas without pantos, crackers, and the Christmas number one, so she’ll also talk about the traditions and cultural quirks essential to a proper British holiday.  You’ll be fully prepared to eat, drink, and be merry, UK-style!

About the Presenter

Claire Evans is a former journalist, attorney, and college lecturer who started her love of most things British as she and her mother watched countless Britcoms on PBS. She went on to study abroad in London and, against the odds, she married a Brit she met in Peoria, Illinois. They moved to England, where they lived for a number of years. 

Outside of her work for a legal advice charity, Claire became a student of historical sights, pub dining, and tea shops. Her business, Tea with Claire, grew from friends asking for travel and relocation advice.
