Join us to celebrate a 17th century style Christmas at Moseley Old Hall.

A 'Riotous Christmas'

Join us here at Moseley Old Hall for a 'Riotous Christmas'! It's 1652 and Oliver Cromwell may have banned Christmas but that doesnt stop celebrations here at the rebellious Moseley. We celebrate Christmas in a way that would make Charles II  proud, see the house dressed with traditional decorations, play board games in the Parlour and taste 17th Century sweet treets made in the brewhouse.
