Go back in time for Christmas

The imposing mansion house of Attingham will open its doors for ‘A 1940s Christmas at Attingham’ from Saturday 1 to Sunday 23 December. The decadent showrooms will be individually themed and decorated to transport visitors back to the Christmases of the decade. Guests can discover music, photographs and papers, stories and traditions throughout the house, including in the basement, and on selected dates, 1940s cooks will be in the kitchen baking and preparing recipes from the era.

There will be three entry times each day: between 10am and noon; between noon and 2pm; and between 2pm and 3.30pm, and tickets are available now, both for the 40s events and for visits to Father Christmas – tickets must be pre-booked for time sessions.

This December visits to the Mansion will be by prebooked timed ticket only, including for NT members. Attingham’s Claire Tafft says, “The Mansion will look festive with decorated trees throughout the rooms, and we’ll be uncovering Attingham’s 1940s stories. By introducing pre-booked tickets for the first time this year, we’ve built in extra capacity for visitors across December but would advise people wanting to visit on a particular day to book early as we may reach the limit for visitors on certain days.”
