Plenty of festive fun at Croome

Friday 07 December 2012 Updated: 10/12 14:06

THERE will be some extra sparkle at an historic house this Christmas as it plays host to a packed programme of seasonal family fun.

Christmas at Croome will see the National Trust house, near Pershore, decorated for the festive season with Father Christmas in his grotto and a special family trail around the park.

“Father Christmas will be greeting families every weekend in his sparkling grotto in the old wine cellar of the house and there’s also a really fun family trail challenge to take part in around the garden” Amy Forster, House and Visitor Services Manager, said.

“Our staff have managed to decorate a gigantic Christmas tree in the Saloon using a scaffold to get the very top. We’re encouraging everyone to leave a Christmas wish or memory on the tree so everything looks really special this year.”

Croome will also play host to two carol concerts in the church at 3pm tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday, December 16.

The grotto in the house costs £3 per child and the trail, available from reception, is £1.
