1920s Christmas at Attingham Park
Step back in time and enter a 1920s Christmas at Attingham Park from Saturday 3 December to Friday 23 December. You are cordially invited to leave the stresses of modern life behind and enjoy the festivities of this time of year with a 1920s twist. Discover traditions old and new from the 1920s to the present day and maybe even create some of you own at Attingham this December.
The Christmases of the 1920s, celebrated at Attingham, were not opulent. The shadow of the First World War was still being felt across the country, but Thomas 8th Lord Berwick and his wife Teresa always ensured that there were Christmas celebrations with decorations, parties and entertainments for their estate workers, tenants, and friends. Join us as we step back in time and experience a 1920s Christmas and discover how their Christmas traditions varied from ours.
