Visit the National Trust's Hanbury Hall this festive season for a sentimental trip through past stories of wild house parties.

From Saturday, November 25 until Sunday, January 7, you can dress festively and share in Christmas festivities influenced by tales about the house from the 1970s and 1980s.

The Hall, a Grade I listed building with the Queen Anne architectural style, is said to have been the host of big parties thrown by former tenants decades ago, and is now decorated to capture their festive spirit with displays of colourful lights and classic tunes.

A journey around the house will reveal a recreated scenes from those past Christmas times, with familiar toys of the era, a nostalgic buffet, classic TV shows and Christmas number one hits to sing along upstairs all to explore.

Visitors can pop into the Del Boy bar for a Babycham, and might even bump into Father Christmas as he roams through the house and gardens.

Outside in the courtyard, a 16-foot Christmas tree awaits, along with a decked-out second-hand book shop, full of award-winning titles, classics and children's books.

The Long Gallery will feature a curated exhibition of 1970s and 1980s fashion, art and photography by Anne Walter, packed with tweed suits, hipster flares, evening dresses, jackets and jumpers.

Amidst all the throwbacks, be sure to also explore the grounds by following one of the three waymarked walking routes.

Visitors can relax and refuel in one of the dining venues - the Courtyard Kitchen restaurant or the dog-friendly Stables Café.

Enjoy a Baileys hot chocolate or mulled wine, along with festive bakes or even a hot turkey bap.

A traditional three-course Christmas lunch can be pre-booked at the Courtyard Kitchen.

Entry to Hanbury Hall is free for National Trust members.
