From Hallowtide to Yuletide

Festive fun at Little Moreton Hall

Festive fun at Little Moreton Hall

For Tudors, Hallowe'en was about the souls of the dead. Discover the origins of trick or treating, and listen to some spooky stories during our Hallowtide week. Saturday 25 October to Sunday 2 November.

Our preparations for Yuletide begin on the last weekend in November when we need lots of help to make decorations for the Long Gallery. Return for the celebrations in December and enjoy festive fun with jesters, story telling and musical entertainment. Explore a traditional Tudor Christmas when the Hall will be decorated with displays of food and taste some of the seasonal specialities.

Our old exhibition about how the hall was built was in need of a update!

The new displays have now been installed around the hall and we'd love to hear what you think. Please email us or fill in a comment card during your visit.

We love our bed!

We're still very excited about our full tester bed which arrived at the hall last year. Read about why it was commissioned and how our visitors can learn about the bed habits of the Tudors!
