Arrive to a cup of tea/coffee followed by a tour through the festive rooms of the house decorated with trees, candles and twinkling lights.


Settle down to a traditional three course Christmas lunch in the Long Gallery, once the Tudor stables, with views across the gardens.


After lunch wander over to the underfloor heated Essex Barn for a performance of ‘Twas the Night before Christmas, brought to you by the troupe who created The Tailor of Gloucester play so charmingly last year. This year’s entertainment will be a light-hearted look at how and why our Christmas came into being to form the festivities we recognise today. With Clement C Moore’s classic poem at its heart, expect a trip through time and traditions with music, singing and of course, some jolly audience participation. St Nicholas may even put in an appearance!


Finish the afternoon with mulled wine, a touch of retail therapy and a mince pie.
