Christmas at Haddon Hall

2018 presented

Sleeping Beauty and Other Tales

and our visitors were enchanted to discover the glorious decorations celebrating the fairy tales of old and the magic of Haddon Hall itself, which long ago was awoken from its years of slumber.



. . . you cannot know who you may find within the depths of the Hall . . .


. . . who has been busy . . . 


. . . or who has been there before you . . . 


We have exciting plans for Christmas 2019 and our leaflet will be available here later in the year.

Christmas Music at Haddon

At Christmas, Haddon takes pleasure in inviting singers and performers from our local communities to  join us and perform.  Each day last Christmas, there were musical recitals held in front of the great fire within the Banqueting Hall, which brought great joy and delight to us all.  Performances were held twice a day at 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm, allowing viistors to enjoy lunch or tea, before or after, or both!  Keep an eye on these pages and our Special Events listings for details of musical performances planned at Haddon during Christmas 2019.

Candlelight Tours

Once again in 2018 we offered our wonderful Candlelight Tours. Visitors enjoyed a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie before walking the Hall with our knowledgeable guides when it was at its most atmospheric. Haddon comes alive with Christmas spirit by candlelight, so next Christmas, why not join us for a special treat and take in the beauty of the rooms dressed for the festive season, during the twilight hours. 




The Haddon Restaurant will also be open for Christmas, serving a seasonal menu designed to showcase the best of local produce. The Christmas menu for 2019 will be available here later in the year.

Please note that the gardens may not be open at Christmas depending on weather conditions.
