Christmas at Greenway

For Christmas 2019 at Greenway, merriment and mischief abounded. Inspired by Agatha Christie's 'The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding', you could follow the adventures of a troublesome Christmas pudding and get into the Christmas spirit. Check back here nearer the time to find out what's happening for Christmas 2020.

 

The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding

On weekends and selected dates from Saturday 30 November - Tuesday 31 December 2019

Greenway will be transformed this winter into its own Christmas story based on the Christie classic 'The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding'. This December a naughty Christmas pudding will take over Greenway and Father Christmas takes time out to visit. 

" Holly and mistletoe had been brought in in large quantities and a Christmas tree had been set up at one end of the dining-room. Everyone helped to decorate it, to put up the branches of holly behind pictures and to hang mistletoe in a convenient position in the hall."
- Agatha Christie, The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding

Deck the halls

Greenway House was the holiday home of Agatha Christie, and the family would gather here to celebrate the season. All the rooms will be trimmed with traditional decorations, family Christmas games and clues to what the cheeky Christmas Pudding has been up to. 

Step into the heart of the home, the House Kitchen, and you'll be immersed in the festive pudding smells. Learn the history of the famous Christmas pudding and take a peek at traditional recipes.

Christmas Pudding trail

The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding is well underway, and armed with clues from the house, continues outside into the garden. Bring the family, work in teams or go solo and follow the map to uncover the mystery. 

There'll be pudding challenges on the trail to test your skills and mind. Can you splat a Christmas pudding? Or beat your family in a game of pudding tennis? 

 

A taste of Christmas

There's nothing better in winter then exploring the outdoors, so why not do it with a cupful of cheer. This year there'll be a pop up bar in the courtyard selling hot chocolates and more. Choose your favourite hot chocolate flavour or a mulled wine, grab a christmas waffle pop and head into the garden on the trail or just for a wander.
