Christmas at Leith Hill Place 2017

Enjoy the carol singers around the cosy fire, family activities and festive refreshments. Get into the Christmas mood early at Leith Hill Place.

Friday 8, Saturday 9 & Sunday 10 December, 11am-3:30pm

Some of the best-loved Christmas carols were arranged by composer, Ralph Vaughan Williams.  His ‘O little town of Bethlehem’ is based on an old English folk song which he collected from the nearby village of Forest Green.

Enjoy singing this and other favourites, led by hand-picked local vocal groups.  Be entertained and then have the chance to join in the seasonal songs in the Terrace Room where Vaughan Williams learned to play the piano and violin.

The house will be beautifully dressed in winter greenery and the fires will be crackling in the grates.  Sample mouthwatering festive fare, lovingly made by our volunteers.  There will also be some crafty activities for families and above all, the famous warm welcome.

The vocal groups will be perfoming 30 minute slots at 12noon, 1pm & 2pm. Here is the line up (subject to change):

Friday 8 December: Morrigan

Saturday 9 December: Leith Hill Timeline Choir

Sunday 10 December: Simply Music Community Band & Riverside Quartet 

Normal admission charges apply and National Trust members are free.  We would appreciate your generous donations in the kitchen for the festive treats and there is a small charge for activities.
