Experience what Christmas is like in an 18th century parsonage, with candlelit rooms, log fires and traditional decorations.
The curator will give a lively tour of the house sharing with you the history of the Hall and its many inhabitants over 600 years. This year, the tour will have a 'good-humoured' twist in honour of our ongoing project, The Good Humour Club. Find out how Christmas might have been celebrated by this eighteenth-century gentlemen's club.
After the tour you are welcome to join us by the fire for a complimentary glass of mulled wine and a mince pie in the Old Kitchen.
