The Watson family are celebrating and their servants are stealing a moment to take you around the Castle in all its festive glory. Will you meet the butler at the door or a footman lighting candles for dinner? Will the housekeeper be sewing last minute gifts in the Panel Room or perhaps the governess will be tidying away toys in the Long Gallery? The pianist could be warming up to entertain the family for the evening and just maybe you’ll find a group of carol singers in the fairy light bedecked courtyard. Come and experience the magic of Christmas in this unique setting sure to get all the family in the mood for festive fun.
