On weekends throughout December, the Grantley Suite and Japanese Garden will be transformed into the magical realm of Narnia – bringing to life the mystical creatures of C.S. Lewis’ much-loved children’s books.

But don’t be fooled into thinking this is just like the next family Christmas experience. Sure, younger guests will be able to enjoy the excitement that an adventure through Narnia (culminating in the discovery of Santa’s Grotto and nabbing a minute or two with the Big Man himself), will undoubtedly bring. But where else would grown-ups also be able to enjoy a sumptuous four-course menu and live entertainment, too?

Your ticket includes:

  • A 4-course festive menu
  • A children’s festive menu
  • Still and sparkling water
  • Festive novelties
  • A gift for each child (up to the age of 12)
  • Live entertainment.

Tickets are £85 per person for adults, £35 per child aged 2–12, £42.50 for children aged 13–15 (infants under the age of 2 are free of charge).

Please email events@grantleyhall.co.uk to book your tickets.

There’s something so sweet about the sound of carols in the cold evening air at Christmastime. Now, experience that festive magic in the gorgeous surrounds of Grantley Hall’s inimitable The Orchard.

With all proceeds being donated to Grantley Hall owner Valeria Sykes’ chosen charity – still yet to be confirmed – that singing will sound even sweeter with the knowledge your tickets will be helping those in need.

This special evening will begin in the Winter Orchard, with guests being welcomed with a glass of mulled wine on arrival (after all, we have to put the ‘merry’ into ‘Merry Christmas’!). You will then be entertained with a Christmas carol concert, followed by refreshments and mince pies to finish off the evening.

Your ticket includes:

  • Mulled wine on arrival
  • Entry into Christmas carol concert
  • Refreshments and mince pies

Tickets are £45 per person.
