This Christmas Lets Do The Time Warp Again as we celebrate in true retro style inside the Hall. The tinsel will be glowing, the laughter will be flowing, the Babycham will be popping and the Slade hits will be dropping – we’re turning back the clock for a nostalgic trip back in time.

Take a trip down memory lane

Saturday 25 November 2023 to Sunday 7 January 2024

This Christmas, we're turning back the clock for a nostalgic trip to the late-20th-century, inspired by the 1970s and 80s.

Get a blast from the past as you explore the house dressed for the Christmas we all remember: a riot of colour, with bright lights, baubles and tinsel galore.

While you're here why not reminisce over your favourite toys from the era, or wander around listening to all the Christmas number ones? You might even spot Father Christmas having a snooze in front of the television.

The Hall will be open daily from 10am - 4pm, with last entries at 3.45pm.

No booking needed, just turn up on the day and join in the party!

Please note: the whole property will be closed on 24 and 25 December.

We're excited to be hosting a 1970s and 80s fashion, art and photography exhibition in the Long Gallery organised by Anne Walter.

Come and admire a range of fashion pieces that were popular during the period, from tweed suits and hipster flares to evening dresses, jackets and jumpers.

Open daily from Saturday 25 November - Sunday 7 January, 10am - 4pm.
