A Family Christmas

Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 December | Worcestershire County Museum at Hartlebury Castle

A Family Christmas returns to Hartlebury Castle this December! 🎄 Enjoy a magical December day out in the Worcestershire countryside where the castle and museum will be dressed for Christmas…

The weekend is more jampacked with festivities than ever and the Castle will be alive with seasonal music and enchanting decorations. Mother Christmas will be waiting to greet families throughout the event.

Explore the Castle and Museum to discover all the hidden Nutcracker Soldiers – and there may even be a fairy to be found too!

Families can also get stuck into Christmassy crafts and entertainment including biscuit decorating and circus skills. The festively decorated Victorian schoolroom will be ready and waiting for children to write those all-important letters to Father Christmas.

A winter walk around the historic moat is a lovely addition to the day; stop off at the bird hide to see what wildlife you can spot on your way to the fantastic woodland playground. Refuel with a coffee, hot chocolate and homemade food at Hayley’s Kitchen café or settle into the lovely Orchard Picnic Area which has accessible benches.

Take some nature home with you as Hartlebury Castle’s volunteer gardeners have been busy making beautiful wreaths which you can purchase to adorn your door this Christmas.

A Family Christmas is the perfect way to get the festive season going for children – and grown-ups too!
