Deck The Argory with trees and holly
See the house dressed for Christmas on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 December
The family at The Argory had a passion for music. Come along and hear the beautiful sounds of our 200 year old Bishop organ and the Steinway piano in the drawing room. Trees, trinkets and garlands will decorate the rooms and the dining room will be laid for dessert after a show stopping main course.
We have delved deep into our archives and discovered some fascinating facts about how the different generations of the family lived at The Argory. One interesting find we uncovered was the shopping lists for food to be purchased for the Christmas day feast as well as a little book containing the weights of each of the family’s guests that visited the house at Christmas during the time of Captain Shelton, the second owner.
The house will be open for free flow tours during the Christmas Fair on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 December.
