Christmas at Belton
Belton is set to sparkle like never before this Christmas, with trees of every shape and size, a programme of seasonal events, and guaranteed fun for all the family.
Glitter and sparkle
The festive season kicks off at Belton on 26 November and to make the most of all the seasonal sparkle, the stableyard will be staying open an hour longer at weekends. A great way to soak up the atmosphere and do a spot of Christmas shopping without the hassle of the high street.
Join us for an evening of festive brilliance as Belton lights up. We’ve teamed up with projection specialists at Derby QUAD to create a magical evening of music and illumination. The grand finale is a closely guarded secret but we promise a night of Christmas fun for all the family. Book your tickets today.
For families there will be a host of activities from outdoor trails and mural making to crafting and dressing up in the Discovery Centre.
On 21 December a Festive Family Fun Day promises even more fun, with song writing workshops, face painting and storytelling. There’s also the Belton annual Christmas Jumper Competition, so don’t forget to come in your festive finest.
It wouldn't be Christmas without...
...a visit from a certain someeone. Father Christmas will be at Belton every weekend from 2-18 December. You'll need to book in advance by calling the Belton Estate Office on 01476 566116 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
See where it all happens
While most of the display rooms in the mansion are closed for winter conservation, visitors can step back in time to the 1930s on a Below Stairs Tour. You'll hear how Belton’s servants prepare for a high society party and take in the grand dining room dressed in all its Christmas splendour. The special basement tours run every day from 26 November until Friday 6 January with tickets available at the Marble Hall from 10.30.
