Wightwick's traditional Christmas returns

The upper hall decorated for Christmas at Wightwick Manor

With a dash of carols, a sprinkle of presents and a large helping of greenery Wightwick's recipe for a traditional Christmas is better than ever.

The Manor in all its winter finery

Our talented team of volunteers will be decorating the Manor for a traditional Christmas between Monday 26 until Friday 30 November 2018; come along and see it all take shape. Our decorations will be finished for all to see from Saturday 1 December until Sunday 6 January 2019. As you walk around the Manor, take in our volunteers beautiful handiwork in creating a traditional Victorian family Christmas.

Remember the Manor is closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. The site can be very busy at weekends, especially when Father Christmas is visiting, so we recommend visiting during the week if you are able.

Christmas Carols in the Great Parlour

Once again we have carol concerts in the Great Parlour, a magical setting to start the festive period. This year we welcome back Tantallon, who will sing a wide variety of festive music, hopefully providing something for everyone, all with the purpose of giving a super evening of musical entertainment. Musical Director and accompanist are husband and wife team, Larry and Linda Smith and choir members come from Aldridge, Brownhills, Cannock, Sutton Coldfield, Telford and Wolverhampton. See them on 6, 12 & 20 December, tickets on sale from 1 November 2018, booking essential on 03442491895. The concerts start at 8pm (door opens 7:30).

Meet Father Christmas 

Father Christmas will be setting up his sitting room in the Manor once again, and is joining us on the 15, 16, 22 & 23 of December between 10:30 and 4. Due to popularity last year this year all tickets must be pre-booked via our website. We cannot guarantee any on the door tickets as this is a timed event with no options to 'squeeze in' any more.

Tickets cost £8.00 per child which includes present and garden entry for the child, pre-book online only. All accompanying adults who aren't members of the National Trust need to pay a garden entry price. Tickets on sale from 1 November 2018.
