Head back to Christmases of the 1970s and 80s this Yuletide at Hanbury Hall

THE CHRISTMAS Party giving people a nostalgic trip back to the 1970s and 80s returns to Hanbury Hall this festive season.

The tinsel is glowing, the laughter is flowing, the Babycham is popping, the Slade hits are dropping.

The event is inspired by rumours that there were wild house parties at the property during the 70s and 80s so the National Trust has created a festive extravaganza inspired by the era.

People can experience a blast from the past as they explore the house dressed for the Christmas many of can still remember – a riot of colour, lights, and tunes galore.

Visitors can also reminisce over their favourite toys from the era and revisit a surprisingly familiar buffet.

Catch some of the classics on the telly and dander upstairs to listen to all the Christmas number ones – all while enjoying a Babycham or two from the Del Boy bar and Father Christmas will also be wandering around the house and gardens.

There is also the chance to escape to the Long Gallery where the favourite board games of the 70s and 80s are set out for players to enjoy.

The two decades even spill out into the hall’s gardens.

Among the events will be retro afternoon teas on weekends throughout December, Breakfast with Santa every Saturday morning and gingerbread decorating from December 18 to 23.

and take a wander around the gardens to find out how the 70s and 80s have crept into the outdoors.

Booking is essential for the events.

Call 01527 821214 to book.

The Servants Hall Tea Room will be open for hot drinks, lunches and snacks, and gift shop will be open throughout the event, stocked with a beautiful range of National Trust gifts – perfect for picking up some special Christmas presents.
