Ho ho ho! Father Christmas is coming to Strangers’ Hall this December. His friendly elf helpers are here to whisk you away to meet the man himself in his workshop – tickets include a gift, and a chance to snap a Santa-selfie. You can meet Father Christmas only, or include a visit to the museum where the magic of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas awaits you… Stroll around the hall to take in the splendid interiors, bedecked with traditional greenery, decorations and trees. See the stockings “hung by the chimney with care” and seek out Chris Mouse and his furry friends hidden around the museum. Meet costumed characters, join in with festive preparations in the kitchen and immerse yourself in Victorian entertainment in the Undercroft; along with storytelling and Christmas crafts. Don’t forget to take a peek at Father Christmas’s sleigh too, tucked away in the coach-house. Step out into the courtyard’s magical Christmas scene, sup warming punch in the wintry garden and stock up on goodies from seasonal stalls.
