Waddesdon Manor was built for Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild in the 1870s to display his collections and entertain the fashionable world. We are going there for Christmas Festival, Christmas Fair 2018 & winter walks!
Christmas Carnival – both inside and out, our displays take inspiration from the wondrous festivals and celebrations conjured up by Waddesdon’s treasured artworks – from sumptuous feasts, lavish gifts and masked balls to the theatre, fancy dress and fairy tales – there’s something for everyone. Bring the family and share a festive day out gazing at the decorated house, exploring our biggest ever Christmas fair, indulging in celebratory foods and shopping for gifts.
From dusk, the grounds will come to life with a new light show created by the Guildhall School, projected onto the Stables and inspired by the objects, architecture and gardens of Waddesdon. Beyond the Aviary you’ll discover a light trail that playfully combines colour, sound and movement and the front of the Manor will be bathed in light. Inside the decorated rooms you’ll find dazzling decorations and trees sparkling with light.
