What's on

There are plenty of fun things going on at Red House over Christmas. The house is decorated with hops and lavender just as William Morris would have used. Our Olde Father Christmas tells stories of Christmas past, Mummers plays, Morris men and carols singers all make for a Christmas to remember.


Do something different with the children during the weekend before Christmas. Morris and his friends were obsessed with wombats so we have wombats for you to decorate and add some sparkle to your Christmas tree
