Thousands of people flocked to the historic Kentwell Hall, in Long Melford, yesterday and today, for the first of two Dickensian Christmas.
From the visit of Father Christmas and St Nicholas to a reading of “A Christmas Carol” by a look-a-like Charles Dickens, complete with Victoria special effects, and a special Elf and Safety Training School for children - and even adults - there was something for everybody who attended.
Visitors were able to enjoy a music hall and magic show, play traditional table games in the Victorian Tavern along with Christmas crafts for the family to make.
There was also carols by lantern in the courtyard at the end of the day with festive Victorian food available along with traditional decorations and people dressed in their Dickensian wardrobe.
Alix Massey, the marketing manager at Kentwell, said: “We have had thousands of people attend, up on last year and we are really, really pleased with the event.
