VIDEO: Christmas kicks off at Brodsworth Hall

Brodsworth Hall has got into the festive spirit by kicking off a series of Christmas activities and events.

The historic Victorian country house played host to a rousing carol concert at the weekend with visitors packing into the English Heritage property to hear a few Christmas classics.

Next weekend, Father Christmas will be arriving at the hall, with events on Saturday 13, Sunday 14, Saturday 20, Sunday 21, Monday 22 and Tuesday 23 December at 10.30am, 11.45am, 1pm, 2.15pm and 3.15pm.

Santa will be telling tales of Christmas past, along with a few Yuletide stories as well as a treat for each child and photo opportunities.

On December 19, the hall will host Ghost Stories for Christmas, a spine-tingling series of ghostly tales told by the Lady and Gentleman of the House in a unique candelit bone-chilling festive frightfest.

The event is not suitable for under 14s. Booking is recommended for both events and participants should dress warmly as the hall will be unheated.
