Step back in time and get into the festive spirit as you take an atmospheric tour around the seasonally decorated house. Enjoy a warming glass of mulled wine together with a mince pie before you take a seat in the magnificent Banqueting Hall, with its beautifully decorated tree, to hear the ‘Hoghton in Harmony’ choir as they sing a selection of Christmas Carols.
As you are guided through the house, imagine the merriment of the festivities that have taken place over the centuries. Listen to tales from Christmas in different ages; you will hear the origins of many of our Christmas traditions and glimpse life at this festive time in years gone by.
The tour will last one hour and will include rooms decorated for Christmas. It will not include all the rooms on a standard house tour. We expect the event to finish at approximately 15.45.
