Join Charles Dickens for a Victorian Christmas at Kentwell Hall
PUBLISHED: 15:00 03 December 2018
Charles Dickens and Christmas past will be brought vividly back to life over the two weekends at Kentwell Hall near Sudbury.
Kentwell’s Dickensian Christmas festive family event is set in 1869; the era of Charles Dickens who is mainly responsible for creating Christmas as we know it today.
Visitors can enjoy the historic Tudor house at Long Melford decorated in traditional Victorian style, whilst the family, household and villagers go about their daily lives preparing for the big day.
Children can meet Father Christmas in his Grotto, see how the Wicked Fairy has turned her house upside down, visit the Elves’ training facilities in their Magic Kingdom and enter Narnia-land through the wardrobe.
Visitors can also see Charles Dickens reading his ‘A Christmas Carol’ with illusions that bring the ghost and spirits to life.
There will also be music and magic shows in the Tavern Musical Hall, and making traditional decorations in the craft marquee.
The day will close carols by candlelight around the big Christmas Tree in the stable yard.
It takes place on the weekends of December 8-9, and December 15-16 between 10am and 6pm on both days.
