Christmas at Attingham is magical and much loved by many visitors, particularly families enjoying a visit to Father Christmas. If you love Christmas too, join our team of volunteers that help make Christmas special for many of our visitors and spread the Christmas spirit. Plus, ultimately the event supports our important conservation work at Attingham.
