Christmas at Lamb House

Christmas family storytelling

See Lamb House decorated in festive cheer from 29 November - 10 December to celebrate E.F Benson's fictional characters, Mapp and Lucia.

Visiting this Christmas

Discover Mallards, Lamb House’s fictional alter-ego, at Christmas. Delight your imagination with Mapp’s festive, and sometimes stolen, recipes in the Dining Room. See the Tilling Art Society’s Winter Exhibition, and see who has sent Christmas cards to Mallards. Join Mapp’s Bridge Evening, and read her letters to friends, and some enemies.

A Mapp and Lucia Christmas takes  place between Friday 29 Nov- Tuesday 10 Dec, open every Friday-Tuesday between 11am-4pm.
