Christmas in Sussex 

Our places in Sussex are getting ready to share their festive traditions with you. The house at Petworth is dressed for a masquerade ball. Designer Kaffe Fassett is creating a winter tree at Standen and Bateman's will be dressed to impress. Father Christmas is at the seaside at Birling Gap and in the castle at Bodium. Or for something truly nostalgic try a festive visit to Nymans' Ladybird book exhibition.
