Christmas at Holkham
Champagne, Candlelight and Creators of Christmas
Saturday 7th December
6pm-9pm, last entry 7.30pm
Holkham is delighted to be opening its doors for a unique chance to meet some of the faces behind Christmas at Holkham. From how the original concepts are dreamed up by Lady Leicester and her team, through to the artists and makers who turn these visions into reality, discover how we decorate this magical space.
The wonderfully creative Laurentino Azevedo will tell you how to dress your Christmas tree in the magnificent style of the Saloon tree. Meet couturiere Henrietta Faire who has created the incredible Freya dress made entirely out of paper. Emma Thorburn of Buns of Fun will wow you yet again with her gingerbread-baking talents and gingerbread ski chalet. Lady Anne Glenconner will be signing copies of her best-selling memoir ‘Lady in Waiting’ which, according to The Sunday Times, is ‘Remarkable… If your jaw doesn’t drop at least three times every chapter, you’ve not been paying proper attention’.
Be entertained by harpist Zoe Anderton while you enjoy a glass of Champagne in the Marble Hall on arrival before exploring the rooms, dressed for Christmas, at your own pace. Room stewards will also be present in each space to answer questions and tell you about the rooms and decorations.
