Join us for a unique Twelfth Night celebration where a traditional Twelfth Night cake determines who plays what role in Shakespeare’s beloved comedy. Ring in the new year with a joyous, one-of-a-kind event that will never be the same twice.

Now, now the mirth comes,
With the cake full of plums,
Where Bean’s the king of the sport here;
Besides we must know,
The pea also
Must revel, as queen, in the court here.

Begin then to choose,
This night as ye use,
Who shall for the present delight here,
Be a king by the lot,
And who shall not
Be Twelfth-day queen for the night here.

– Robert Herrick, Twelfe Night
