Lotherton Hall Christmas Experience
The Edwardian estate is taking its cues from tradition as the Christmas experience is an interactive story telling event spread across the entire park.
Lotherton Hall proudly presents “The 12 Days Walk”, which incorporates its glorious woodland with the well-known song as each ‘day’ has an activity associated with it. Story telling is taken in its most essential form in the elf village as the children are looked after by the head elves allowing them to participate in craft activities and write a postcard to Santa while magical stories of Lapland are told.Councillor Judith Blake, Leeds City Council’s lead member for museums and galleries, attended the opening on the 25th November and commented: “The Christmas Experience will be a truly special event for all ages, and the curiosity from those who came along to our preview event was so fantastic to see!"
The Edwardian Weekend returns on the 10th & 11th of December, decorating the house in period fashion of Yule tide and running a host of festive activities. With carol singing in the drawing room and wreath making in the courtyard, it’s hard to miss this window into another class and time.
