Now in its fifth year, visitors can enjoy a day of festive shopping and seasonal décor in the stunning setting of Strawberry Hill House and their connecting neighbour St Mary's University, home of the grand chandelier-lit, Waldegrave Drawing Room.
From bespoke and original hand-made gifts, local crafts & produce - from over 40 exhibitors curated by The DecorCafe network, Christmas styling across the historic rooms, demonstrations, tastings and inspired gifts to purchase - visitors can enjoy a truly experiential festival. A delicious selection of festive foods will also be on offer to enjoy on the day - including a hog roast and mulled wine
As part of the Richmond Literature Festival, there will also be two festive themed author talks: 'A Tudor Christmas' with Alison Weir & Siobhan Clarke and 'How to Use Colour to Transform your life' with Karen Haller.
DecorCafe founder, Debbie Blott has said:
"There are so many talented local people making original gifts to be treasured for generations, stunning decorations and delicious food and drink, we are delighted to showcase their skills whilst creating a wonderful day out for visitors to shop in the extraordinary interior of Strawberry Hill House - the perfect Christmas House".
