Come and join in the seasonal spirit at the Castle which will be dressed especially for Christmas. Listen to hand bell ringers playing in the Great Hall at 12 and 2.30pm. Families can pre-book a visit to see Father Christmas in the Castle’s old kitchen. Mother Christmas will also be making appearances over the weekend. Follow the Christmas Elf Trail, buy a fresh wreath made by the Castle’s gardeners, get yourself a yummy pizza made by Urban Village Pizza in the courtyard and warm up with a drink of mulled wine and mince pies in the Saloon.
