Join the historic Holte family for an evening of Jacobean wonder at Aston Hall by Candlelight

19th September 2013

This November, visitors of all ages are invited to discover the historic Aston Hall at its most breathtaking, lit by hundreds of shimmering candles. Guests will experience the hall as it was during the 17th century, as servants of the house prepare for the Holte family’s return from London. Costumed characters will bring the event to life as all members of the household look forward to the winter festivities.
 
Visitors can explore many of the house’s magnificent rooms bathed in a golden glow of candlelight, including the Sir Thomas Holte’s grand staterooms and the stunning oak-lined Long Gallery. Roaring fires, seasonal music and a bustling household staff make this one of Birmingham’s most atmospheric winter events. The fun continues outdoors as entertainers will warm the crowds while the vintage craft fayre and Aston Hall gift shop are the perfect destination for some early Christmas shopping. 
 
In addition, visitors are able to savour some traditional fayre including hot roast rolls, mince pies and ale or a welcoming hot chocolate in and around the Stables café. Aston Hall by Candlelight is a truly magical winter treat for the whole family.
