An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until 23rd December 2017
Each of the medieval rooms in the Palace will be decorated with a different theme, exploring styles through the ages and bringing the outside in, with seasonal foliage and greenery from the Palace Gardens. Visitors will be greeted by roaring fires, a multitude of twinkling trees and a range of family friendly activities celebrating all the fun of the festive season.
The buildings and Gardens will be illuminated with colourful lighting, and a Family Christmas Star Trail will lead visitors through the Palace & Gardens, following the stars, to end at our stunning nativity scene.
The “Vintage Family Come & Play” room, will have games and toys, representing Christmas presents from the last 100 years, and the East Gallery will host an exhibition of “Christmas Past/Christmas Present” with memories of years gone by.
Each weekend there will be a whole host of additional events including Father Christmas (free but ticketed in advance), Christmas music in the Chapel from a range of different local musicians, Scrooge will be reading from A Christmas Carol, mulled wine, mince pies and children’s drinks will be on sale and family Christmas craft sessions.
