Enjoy a historic and heart-warming Yuletide at Holkham Hall this December, with three magical weekends of traditional family entertainment complete with real reindeer to add that special festive feel.
Beautiful Victorian decorations, sparkling entertainment, seasonal food and a visit from Father Christmas himself are highlights of Holkham Hall’s festive Celebrations on the first two weekends of December – 1, 2, 8 and 9.
Holkham Hall will be open from 11am to 5pm each day and visitors will be able to see the magnificently decorated grand state rooms of the north Norfolk property and meet Victorian characters dressed in splendid costumes. There will be story-telling, dancing, carol singing and tales from Christmas past, while Father Christmas will welcome children to collect a gift and leave him their special, secret Christmas wishes. There will also be a unique chance for visitors to see Father Christmas’s reindeer enjoying a welcome short break at Holkham before their hectic schedule of present deliveries begins on Christmas Eve.
In the Old Kitchen visitors can watch the bustling cooks prepare a traditional Festive feast and visit the Stables Café for tempting treats and winter warmers. There will be an opportunity to source a variety of seasonal gifts from Victorian traders’ stalls in the Bygones Museum and Holkham’s own Gift Shop will be well-stocked to find that perfect Christmas present.
On the third weekend of December the spectacular setting of the Marble Hall at Holkham will provide the perfect venue for two magical theatre productions; ‘Mole’s Christmas Wind in The Willows’ on Saturday 15 and ‘A Christmas Carol’ on Sunday 16 with a matinee and evening performance on each day.
Tickets for the two weekends of Festive Celebrations are £12 for adults, £8 for children (2 to 16 years) and £36 for families (two adults and two children). Tickets for the Christmas Theatre are £16 for adults and £12 for children (2-16 year) for the Auditorium and £12 and £8 for the Gallery.
