Embrace the festive season and celebrate Christmas with us here at Moseley Old Hall, 17th century style.


Join us from Saturday 25th November 2023 to discover what Christmas would have been like in this 17th century farmhouse (open days vary, please check our opening times on our homepage). There may not be a Christmas tree, but with festive swags adorning the staircase, a roaring fire in the Hall and the smell of greenery and spice filling each room, our wonderful volunteers ensure that Moseley is a magical place to be at Christmas.

Whether you wander through the hall at your own pace, or join onto one of our Christmas house tours, come along and experience Christmas as they would have in the 17th century.

No booking required, normal admission costs apply. Christmas tours will be adhoc and depend on volunteer availability.
