Sir Gawain & the Green Knight, Chinese New Year Celebration

The San Diego Buddhist Association welcomes you to Hsi Fang Temple to celebrate Chinese New Year.

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

Sit in the mead room and sip a glass of mead or cider while listening to a recital by the famous Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. Audience participation expected.

In the midst of the New Year’s feast, with the King and Court and the noble ladies and knights gathered together, hear the story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, in the original 14th century English while sipping a cup of mead or cider. Audience participation and reading of modern English translation expected. Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is a late 14th century chivalrous romance. The author is unknown; the title was given centuries later. It is one of the best-known Arthurian stories, with its plot mixing two types of folk motifs: the beheading game and the exchange of winnings.

When: Sunday, January 30, 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Or: Twisted Horn Mead & Cider, 1042 La Mirada Court, Vista. twistedhornmead.com
