Holkham Hall - 7th December 2016

On a surprisingly, warm winter morning, we set off for Holkham Hall.

On arrival, we were separated into two groups. Our group was led into the great, big Marble Hall.  A huge marble staircase in front, lined with Christmas trees.  A piano sat in one corner.  We were invited to sing-along to the lady playing Silent Night.

We climbed the Marble staircase and entered through the heavy wooden door.  Firstly visiting a room full of clocks.  In the middle was a replica of Big Ben, made of gingerbread and decorated with colourful, yummy sweets. Through a large, wooden door to a cold hallway, lined with white trees, decorated with pink baubles and Flamingo’s.  Another heavy, wooden door leading to a Banquet Room, a table laid for Christmas Dinner, all covered in freshly, laid, white snow. Along a winding corridor to the huge kitchen, where all the children were shown how to make Christmas Crackers.  Great fun was had making them, by putting in jokes and chocolate treats. Next into a room, with a large Christmas tree and a man sat in red.  His name Father Christmas. The children were invited to play a game of Charades and were given a small gift.  Another door, to a room with a fantastic tree made of Deer’s antlers and a balcony overlooking a small chapel.  A nativity set was displayed. Back into the Marble Hall via the grand staircase.

What a wonderful, Christmas experience.

Thank you Holkham Hall.
