1920s Christmas at Attingham Park
From 28 November Attingham will be opening its doors inviting you to leave the stresses of modern life behind and enjoy the festivities; with a 1920s twist.
Christmas at Attingham in the 1920s, after the impact of WWI was not opulent, but the 8th Lord and Lady Berwick always ensured that there were Christmas celebrations with decorations, parties and entertainments for their estate workers, tenants, and friends. So join us as we step back in time and experience a 1920s Christmas and discover how their Christmas traditions varied from ours.
Visiting the Mansion
The Mansion will be open every day between Saturday 28 November and Wednesday 23 December, from 10.30am- 4pm.
While the Mansion is open, on Saturdays and Sundays throughout December, watch and join in with 'Revel in Dance' as they Charleston it up in the Dining Room. Sessions will start at 11am, 12pm, 1.30pm and 2.30pm. There will be a mixture of demonstrations and workshops, lasting around 30 minutes. So bring along your dancing shoes!
On selected dates throughout December meet our 1920s cooks in the kitchen as they prepare the estate workers' gift baskets.
For our younger guests- pick up a Velveteen Rabbit trail and uncover the popular 1920s children's tale whilst finding the hidden rabbits in the rooms. Take a break in the Butler's Pantry and try a few Christmas crafts or play family games.
