The official start of Autumn is still a week away, and the leaves are just starting to turn, so it might seem a bit too early to start thinking of Christmas. Even so, the team at Ravenwood Castle has had Christmas on our minds for awhile. Last year we launched a brand new holiday event, Christmas Past Present & Future. The event was a great success, and was a lot of fun for us and our guests alike. So we’re thrilled to announce the start of a new tradition, and the return of Christmas Past Present & Future! Join us the weekend of December 13th & 14th, for a celebration of all things Christmas!
To celebrate the Christmases of the Past, we the weekend kicks off with our traditional annual visit by King Henry VIII and his court. The Tudors travel in style, so the king will be sure to bring along his retinue of entertainers. Before, during and after the feast guests will enjoy a variety of acts including a troupe of mummers, singing, and possibly even fire dancing!
Saturday features Christmas Present, with guests enjoying a wide variety of entertaining activities including the ever popular ugly sweater contest, a cookie decorating contest, and of course the opportunity to decorate a Christmas Tree!
The weekend wraps up on Sunday with a sneak peek of Christmas Future. Enjoy breakfast with a very special, extra-jolly red-suited visitor, after which you’ll have an opportunity to share your hopes and desires for future Holiday seasons with a very special Christmas Wish Letter!
So join us the weekend of December 13th & 14th for a celebration of Christmas Past, Present & Future! Tickets for the Christmas Past, Present & Future weekend are $100 per person, and include dinner both nights. Please note that the event starts with dinner on Friday. Late arrivals will be accommodated as best as possible, but to enjoy the full experience please attempt to arrive early Friday evening.
