Join us to experience a huge dose of festive cheer with our ‘Christmas at the Palace’ event.
With a start date of 5th December, we’ll be bringing some socially-distanced joy to the Christmas season, and going bigger than ever before with this celebratory event.
Taking place from 5th – 22nd December 2020, the decorations include a Christmas Traditions Window in the free area, with a painted winter scene, decorations throughout the Palace on a variety of themes, from medieval through to Victorian, Bishop’s Ken’s Christmas Feasting Table, a Victorian Christmas dining table, an Eco Christmas art exhibition created by children from local schools, who have let their imaginations go wild with rubbish to create life-sized Christmas trees, Father & Mother Christmas’s North Pole HQ, and a few super surprises too.
Outside the Palace, the Gardens are also be dressing up for Christmas, with stunning outdoor illuminations on a large scale, and Christmas trees and decorations in the formal gardens.
There will also be a Christmas-themed family trail which will take visitors through the Palace & Gardens, leading to a traditional nativity scene. DOWNLOAD TRAIL HERE.
