Christmas storytelling Windsor

'The magic of Christmas past' storytelling Photographer: Hayley Madden

This winter explore the Christmas display at Windsor Castle, including the magnificent centrepiece, the 20-foot-high Nordmann Fir tree in St George's Hall, taken from Windsor Great Park and dressed with hundreds of iridescent glass and mirrored ornaments.

Enter into the Christmas spirit with our magical storyteller, Olivia Armstrong. Settle down in the glittering State Apartments and discover how, thanks to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, Windsor Castle became the home of Victorian Christmas traditions.

Storytelling sessions will take place at 11:30, 13:30 and 14:30.

Festive arts and crafts for children will also be available on these dates.
