NATIONAL Trust venue Hanbury Hall is going retro this Christmas by celebrating the festive season in 1970s and 1980s style.

Inspired by rumours of wild house parties held at Hanbury Hall during the 70s and 80s, the historic setting will host a Christmas extravaganza inspired by the era.

A Hanbury Hall spokesperson said: "Experience a blast from the past as you explore the house dressed for the Christmas many of us can still remember, a riot of colour, lights, and tunes galore.

"Reminisce over your favourite toys from the era and revisit a surprisingly familiar buffet.

"Catch some of the classics on the telly and dander upstairs to listen to all the Christmas number ones – all while enjoying a Babycham or two from our Del Boy bar, where you may even bump into Father Christmas as he wanders around the house and gardens.

"Take some time out from the party in the house and escape to the Long Gallery where our favourite board games are set out for you to enjoy, and take a wander around the gardens to find out how the 70s and 80s have crept into the outdoors."

In addition, the hall's tea room is offering ‘Retro Afternoon Tea’ on weekends in December, as well as ‘Breakfast with Father Christmas’ on Saturday mornings in December.

Booking is essential for both – call 01527 821214 for more details.

Gingerbread decorating will be taking place from December 18-23 at 10am and 2pm.

The Servants Hall Tea Room will be open for hot drinks, lunches and snacks, and the gift shop will be open throughout the event.
