Christmas at Felbrigg Hall
- 19 September 2023
Felbrigg is the perfect place to bring the family together and get into the festive spirit. For Christmas 2023, discover the tale of an unlikely animal alliance and some jubilant celebrations...
The Wolves of Wild Wood Hall
A wise old forester sat down with a ranger under an ancient oak tree.
“It is time that I told you the secret of Wild Wood Hall…”
This Christmas, get festive at Felbrigg and bring friends and family together to follow a new indoor trail through dreamily dressed ground floor showrooms.
Illustrations, music made from mushrooms, a mirror ball tree and scented materials from the estate will ignite the senses and tell the tale of an unlikely animal alliance...
The Wolves of Wild Wood Hall follows the story of Norfolk’s last wolf pack and its secret hideaway under the flagstones of Felbrigg. The wolves desperately needed shelter when their woodland habitat was ravaged by human activity and an unexpected pact was agreed with fellow furry and feathered creatures, leading to jubilant celebrations at this time each year while human residents sleep in their beds.
Feasts of foraged delights, parlour games and snowy festive cheer are brought to life on the trail, topped off by children's craft activities. Tearoom treats await at the Squire’s Pantry, including woodland-themed gingerbread biscuits and hazelnut hot chocolates.
