Holkham is delighted to be opening its doors for a unique chance to meet some of the personalities and talent behind Christmas at Holkham. Lady Leicester and her team, plus the artists and makers who turn these visions into reality, will be on hand to help you discover how we decorate this magical space.

Amongst others, Natalie Boon, Wildfolk Florist, will be explaining how she created her ethereal Old Kitchen installation alongside Libby, from The Way of Tea, who will provide an insight into the ancient art of dying using plants, leaves and flowers.

Emma Thorburn of Buns of Fun will bring a touch of humour to the South Dining room with this year’s gingerbread creation and the talented team from local florist group Fakenham Flower Club will be on hand to share details of their involvement.

Be entertained by splendid pianists while you enjoy a glass of Champagne in the Marble Hall on arrival before exploring the rooms, dressed for Christmas, at your own pace. Room stewards will also be present in each space to answer questions and explain more about the rooms and decorations.

The Details

Doors open at 6pm, brief introduction at 6.30pm. Events finish at 8pm. Tickets include a glass of Champagne and parking. Our gift shop will be open before the event only, so you can shop for that perfect Christmas present, or some of our wonderful decorations to take home.

Please check Courtyard Café and Gift Shop opening times here.
