About this experience

Help our Victorian servants prepare for the Christmas festivities.


Traditionally, Christmas preparations would begin on the last Sunday before Advent, known as Stir-Up Sunday. Our Historic Kitchens will be decked with holly and ivy to put you in the Christmas spirit, and you can help the servants pound the sugar and spices, stir the plum pudding and make a Christmas wish.


An interactive, promenade performance for all the family.


Children £7 each, accompanying adults free.




Suitable for children aged 6+. All children to be accompanied by an adult. We are able to offer refunds up to two weeks before the event. 


Bringing little ones? Check out our Little Flamingos session at 11am on the same day, specially designed for Early Years
