#Win 2 Tickets for Christmas at Chatsworth - The Nutcracker

Christmas is one of my favourite times of year and the perfect start for me is visiting Chatsworth House in Derbyshire for their Christmas Display.  This year's theme is the fairy tale ballet The Nutcracker and the house will be transformed to present the festive tale.


As you tour the house you can admire beautifully dressed rooms, each telling the story of The Nutcracker with classic scenes from Clara's dream.  Guides will be dressed for the occasion as managers and wardrobe mistresses to give you that backstage feel.

As well as the event in the house, you will also be able to explore a host of themed activities, from nativity performances in the Farmyard to wreath making demonstrations and of course not forgetting the Christmas Market with over 100 stalls. Chatsworth holds something for everyone to enjoy this Christmas.

The display in Chatsworth House opens on the 5th November until 3rd January and the Christmas Markets start on the 12th November until the 30th November.  If you would like to win 2 adult tickets to Christmas at Chatsworth then please complete the rafflecopter form below and don't forget to pop back here after the 14th November when I will have visited myself for more information.

  31. My favourite part of Christmas isn't so much the day itself but the anticipation created in the lead up towards it. People are generally in a more happy, accomadating mood in the few weeks before hand. I also enjoy the traditional side of it even though the past is looked upon largely through rose tinted spectacles ;)
