The Magic of Christmas Past

Professional storyteller, Olivia Armstrong returns to the fireside in St George's Hall and gives us a glimpse into Christmas past at Windsor Castle. Listen to tales of glorious feasts, the first Christmas trees at the Castle, horse-drawn sleigh rides and many more. These spell binding sessions for families are included in the standard admission price, and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis each day. A special activity trail, with presents to spot in the Castle, will also be offered on these dates.
