A Victorian festive treat

GET a taste of Christmas in the 19th Century at Belsay Hall this weekend.

A Victorian cook character tells how her kitchen would run in the build up to the big day, including the preparation, the foods and supplies and the duties that the staff would carry out.

Performances will run between 11am and 4pm on Saturday and Sunday. Also on Sunday, there will also be a chance to hear the Caedmon Choir perform a selection of festive songs from 2pm.

Tickets can only be bought on the day on a first come, first served basis.
