On our twenty first day of Christmas at Haddon, 21st December, we look forward to welcoming De Mowbray’s Musicke who will be performing at Haddon at 12:00 and 2pm in the Banqueting Hall.

To our delight, this wonderful group, who pride themselves on the historic accuracy of their music, instruments and costumes shall also all be hosting workshops and demonstrations throughout the day on music and dance. So come and join in!

We are thrilled that the Jodie Ferrari, the Manchester-based, guild-accredited make up academy shall be coming to Haddon to offer us all advice on our hair, nails and beauty. The Jodie Ferrari beauticians will be on hand, at Haddon, throughout the day to give you a make up lesson that you can wear home for your Saturday night!

Alison Evans, Paper Cutter, from will be demonstrating the delicate art of ‘sherenscnitte’, the art of cutting paper into decorative designs and Haddon’s creative team will be on hand to show you how to make a variety of paper and fabric garlands.

For children, members of the Haddon educational team shall be found in the Medieval kitchens with all sorts of lovely traditional craft ideas and activities for children to make and do.

Our restaurant shall be serving delicious festive meals and the Pop Up Gardener’s Cottage Café will be available for teas, coffee, hot chocolate and cakes!

We look forward to you joining us for this fun filled, inspiring day and hope that you will sign your name on our Christmas card to the Queen, which will be found in the Long Gallery.

In the evening, Haddon will be hosting its magical candlelight Tours that can be complimented by a delicious meal in our restaurant to make it an extra special night out.
