Christmas is magical at Crook Hall.
The house is decorated with greenery from the gardens in time for the first opening day when the log fires will be blazing and the lights on the trees will be twinkling to welcome Father Christmas.
The elves will be working overtime to wrap up all the presents, while the delicious aroma of mulled wine and mince pies will be drifting out of the kitchen.
Adults and children alike can experience the atmosphere of a traditional Christmas in fairy tale surroundings. Elves will be on hand to help children write letters to Father Christmas and make Christmas cards. There will be Christmas story telling and games with Mr Frosty the Snowman. Then they can let off steam in the gardens following the Christmas Treasure Hunt. Of course the most important part of the afternoon will be a visit to the Georgian Study to meet Father Christmas. There will be presents for everyone who has been good – and that includes mums, dads, grandparents etc.

You don’t have to be a child to enjoy the magic of Christmas so have an event especially for grown ups: We are inviting you to come along to Crook Hall and join in a traditional Christmas celebration. The Hall looks beautiful when decorated with holly and ivy and is the perfect setting for carols, open fires, mulled wine and mince pies.
Father Christmas will be waiting to greet all our guests. (He might even have some gifts in his sack – why should the children have all the fun?!!!)
This event is guaranteed to evoke Christmassy feelings and would combine really well with a shopping trip into Durham and perhaps a visit to the Cathedral. This is a chance to escape from the commercialisation of Christmas and enjoy some yuletide magic from years gone by.
£10 per person and pre-booking is essential and open to do so now. Please call on 01913848028. .
