Special: Christmas Past to Present with Ewan Irvine

11 December, 2020.7:30 pm-8:30 pm

Ewan Irvine Presents Christmas Past to Present

Christmas Special


Christmas Past to Present


11/12/2020. 7.30pm until 8.30pm. Free.


Join Us On A Christmas Adventure Through Time


Christmas traditions are different for all. Do you ever wonder why? Or wonder what it’s all for? Let’s find out together as we gather round and listen to how our ancestors celebrated Christmas – long, long ago.

You will have your own idea of Christmas. Childhood memories of perhaps snowmen, sledding, carolling and Christmas trees. What comes to your mind when you think of festive glee? Do you think of family? Presents? Perhaps you think of the feast – of turkeys or pheasants. Whatever you think of, it is hopefully pleasant.

Join us as we remember our ancestors and how they celebrated Christmas. For them, Christmas was a wonderful celebration of light. It was, after all, the beginning of the end of the long dark nights.

They celebrated this with feasts and games, long before Christmas was called Christmas. Their ancient customs weaved their way into present-day traditions. Let’s learn about the folklore – where the tree comes from, the crackers, Father Christmas and more.

Without our ancestors, Christmas would be very different indeed.
Let’s go on a Christmas journey, from Christmas Present to Christmas Past.

What to Expect

This event is storytelling. Ewan Irvine will tell you all about ancient Christmas traditions. All you need to do is listen.

About Ewan Irvine

Ewan Irvine is an international Psychic and Medium, Tutor and Author with a career spanning over 30 years and has also worked extensively in the Paranormal field.  ​

He is a certificate holder of the Spiritualist National Union award (CSNU) in Demonstrating and Speaking.​

​Ewan was born in Edinburgh and had a normal childhood, apart from one thing. As a child, Ewan was aware that he was different from other children, being able to sense Spirit and be aware of events before they actually happened. He also had a firm interest in ghosts from this young age.

​As the years passed, he accepted these and really thought that they were just normal, but it was not until the age of 18 that he was to receive a reading from a medium that was to change his life. The reading, as well as giving him firm proof of the afterlife, answered many of the questions he had over the years. But the reading was to reveal that he would use his own Psychic gift in the years to come.​

​In the following years, Ewan was to develop his own ability in mediumship and began to demonstrate this ability in many of the Spiritualist churches and centres up and down the country. ​
