Day 6

Step back in time to the 1960s to experience the sights, smells & sounds 'below stairs' in the Domestic Wing as we prepare Christmas fit for a Lord.

Thursday - Sunday, 3 - 20 December, 11am - 4pm

 

A new experience

For the first time ever, the Domestic Wing of the House will be open at Christmas to showcase how the former owner of Anglesey Abbey, the 1st Lord Fairhaven celebrated Christmas.
 
The experience will reveal the guests invited to spend Christmas with Lord Fairhaven, how the table was decorated, the festive food and drinks menu, and gifts bought by Lord Fairhaven for family, friends and his domestic staff. Encounters volunteers will be cooking and baking in the Kitchen, whilst the Butler will be mixing some of Lord Fairhaven’s favourite Christmas tipples in the Butler’s Pantry. 
 
Children will be able to make traditional Christmas decorations, such as paper lanterns and chains in the Servant’s Hall, and play with popular 1960’s presents, which included spirographs and fuzzy felts. Decorating gingerbread men is sure to be a tasty treat.
