Christmastide - A Georgian Christmas

7-8, 14-15 December, 12noon - 4pm

Celebrate Christmas, Georgian style! The Georgians didn't mess around when it came to a party, and Christmas was the ultimate celebration. An adults-only affair with music, drinks and games was on the cards.

Visit over the two weekends to meet the well dressed family and their staff, see the lavish decorations and listen to music in the main hall to get a taste of how Christmas should be done.
