A new three-day winter festival promising to meet all your Christmas needs takes place at Knebworth House this month.
The Knebworth Winter Festival will offer a Christmas shopping emporium with over 200 independent designers and makers selling luxury and hand-crafted gifts, plus artisan street food and local produce (with whisky and food tastings). A stage will host food and drink demos including festive dishes and gin-making as well as shopping, entertaining and lifestyle tips.
The event also includes a Winter Comedy Festival with big hitters Greg Davies and Rod Gilbert headlining, while there will be an ‘Après Ski Lodge’ in which to chill out with faux fur rugs, log fires and spiced mulled wine and artisan ciders.
For little ones there’s workshops and storytelling, Bjorn the animatronic polar bear, and an Enchanted Christmas Garden with mystical characters and a maze that leads to Father Christmas. Organisers said they want visitors to ‘leave the festival with a huge smile on their face and immersed in Christmas spirit’.
From November 9-11
