Explore the ‘great house,’ she loved as well as seeing it fully dressed for Christmas.
This event is happening on 13th December 2014 at Chawton House Library near Alton in Hampshire.
It’s an open house between 10am and 3pm. As well as cooking up gourmet christmas treats from the Knight family cookbook, there will also be talks from the food historian, Dr Anne Gray (who featured on the Great British Bake Off,) who will be giving talks on the traditional Georgian christmas dinner – ‘Plumb, Porridge and Pickle for Brawn.’
Tickets are £8 for adults and £4 for children (under fives go free.) You don’t have to book in advance, you can just show up on the day. There is also a family ticket available for £15 which is entry for two adults and up to three children.
You will have to register in advance on arrival if you want to attend the talks. Dr Gray will be holding her events at 10.30am, 11.30am, 12.30 and 14.00.
