Christmas

Christmas is a special time of year at Haddon Hall. Celebrate with us and enjoy Candlelight tours, festive food and drink and a seasonal programme of music.

Festive craft demonstrations and music daily.

From 1st -23rd December, Haddon shall be full of wonderful artisans and makers, chefs and musicians, all of whom will be demonstrating a variety of traditional Christmas skills and crafts which we hope you will enjoy and make you feel, when you have left Haddon, that you have had a truly joyous ‘Christmas Experience’.

Held throughout the day, please explore the calendar below or visit our Event Page to find out what will be happening each day within the beautifully decorated chambers of Haddon.

We hope to see you soon and wish you a very Merry Christmas.
