Saturday 2 - Saturday 23 December
The magical and macabre world of Brothers Grimm fairy tales comes to Hinton Ampner this Christmas. Rapunzel’s plait, adorned with beads and ribbons, spirals down the staircase and the Elves and the Shoemaker hard at work in their workshop.
All of Hinton Ampner's ground floor rooms are decorated, each one bringing to life a different fairy tale. Can you guess which fairy tales will be in which rooms?
" One day the grandmother presented the little girl with a red velvet riding hood; and as it fitted her very well, she would never wear anything else; and so she was called Little Red Riding Hood."
Bring all the family
The fairy tale magic will sweep through the whole estate, including a Brothers Grimm themed Advent calendar trail for all the family to take part in. Find out what's in each box and guess the fairy tale to complete the challenge (£1 suggested donation).
The trail runs from Saturday 2 Decmber - Sunday 31 December
Hinton’s pop-up shop makes a welcome return to the courtyard. Its shelves are laden with traditional old-fashioned sweets to tickle your tastebuds.
