Nottingham Castle Christmas Countdown Clock: Day 5

Welcome to the Nottingham Castle Christmas Countdown, where each night, we’ll be sharing an item from the world-class collections in the Castle’s Galleries in the lead up to Christmas.

'Merry Company (Interior with Cavaliers and Ladies)', Anthonie Palamedesz. (1601–1673), Nottingham City Museums & Galleries

Welcome to day 5 of the Nottingham Castle Christmas Countdown Clock. Tonight, we’re sharing ‘Merry Company’ by Anthonie Palamedesz, which is on display in the Castle’s Art Gallery. The painting shows 16 party-goers gathered round a table as they get ready to tuck into a swan pie. We love this painting, and we certainly can’t wait to have a Christmas party of our own!

Remember, you can follow the Castle’s Christmas Countdown Clock via our website or by visiting the Castle’s historic Gatehouse from 4pm – 8pm in the lead up to Christmas.
