On our fifth day of Christmas at Haddon, 5th December, the hall will ring out with the joyous chimes of the Burbage Handbell Ringing team.

The mixologists of the infamous Monk Buxton in Derbyshire will be teaching how to make the perfect Christmas cocktail and Lydia Waters, Baker and professional cake decorator, will be in the medieval kitchens teaching us how to decorate Christmas cakes, biscuits, Yule logs and cup cakes!

Jane Lappage, a master modern calligrapher, will be demonstrating her beautiful craft and welcoming our visitors to try their hand with new and very on-trend scripts.

To complete this fabulous day, Darling Buds, florists, will be sharing their know-how to show you how to use fresh plant materials to make seasonal decorations to grace your rooms and table during this most colourful of seasons.

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.
