Please note 2019 will probably be the last year that I will be organising trips as I’ve been organising them for the last 10 years and it may be time to hand over to someone else.

Christmas at Hardwick

I have had a request to put on another Christmas related visit and the Christmas at Hardwick event has been recommended. I am therefore exploring likely interest. The date of the proposed visit is Friday 30 November.  I am proposing that we arrive around 10.30 am which will give us time to have a drink before the hall opens at 11.00 am. We will then leave around 3.30 pm at the latest.

The first two levels of Hardwick will be decorated, which is around six rooms, some of which are up flights of stairs. The Great Hall on the top floor is closed for conservation. There will be some Christmas decorations in the grounds too.

Non-NT members will need to pay £11.80 entrance in addition to the coach fare which is £7.00. We will be leaving Hucknall Leisure Centre at 9.30 am.

Please let me know if you are interested.
