A 1970s Christmas

A 1970s Christmas at Lamb House

27 November – 20 December (excl. Thursdays)

We’re stepping back in time to the groovy 1970s for a nostalgia-filled spectacle at Lamb House. Inspired by The Fairy Doll, a Christmas tale by former resident author Rumer Godden, we invite you to rediscover the kitsch, the cosy and the memories of a 1970s Christmas.

Featuring a fantastic artwork display created by The Oaks Specialist College, the house will be transformed with the sights and sounds of this colourful decade.

Reminisce with loved ones as you explore the house and discover the toys, decorations and recipes of your childhood.

There will be opportunities to decorate a Christmas tree, weekly storybook readings and a Hide-And-Seek trail inspired by Rumer Godden’s Christmas tale The Fairy Doll.

Runs daily between 27 November and 20 December, excluding Thursdays.

11am – 4pm, last entry 3:30pm

Standard entry applies.
