Description

Discover the hectic holiday preparations of the 18th century on guided tours. The museum is transformed for the season to highlight the festive traditions of Twelfth Night. The merriment of this historic holiday is largely forgotten, but your family can learn about the revelry the Potts and their guests would have enjoyed.

Marvel at the elaborate desserts and special dishes created for the holiday and find the household staff furiously preparing the greenery decorations for the manor. Hum and dance along to favorite holiday songs with the Potts, but don’t be surprised if the melody isn’t what you think. Join in the spirit of Boxing Day with the servants to find out if you received a special holiday bonus. Uncover the extensive styling done to get ready for an upper-class party and if any of your beauty products are similar to colonial ones. Learn how the Potts children would have a different experience of the holiday season compared to the festivities enjoyed by adults in the house.
