Weston Park has un-wrapped a host of festive treats which are set to delight and entertain all the family.

Visitors can dine by candlelight, do lunch in the Orangery, take a ride on the Santa train, stay overnight in the stately home and purchase the Christmas turkey and seasonal goodies from the Granary Farm Shop.

New for 2009, the stately home on the Staffordshire / Shropshire border will host a Weston by Candlelight evening, taking place on Thursday 17th December. Starting with a glass of mulled wine guests will enjoy a three-course dinner in the stunning Dining Room surrounded by original works by Van Dyck and Lely.
Entertained by the Heart of England Strings the evening will conclude with selection of Christmas carols.

The new Christmas Lunch in the Orangery provides a stunning setting for office parties or a relaxing location for gatherings with family and friends.

The Santa Special train will take children through the wintery woods in the Weston Park Estate to meet Santa in his grotto where they can personally deliver their Christmas lists and receive a gift. The train will run every weekend during December (except 26th and 27th).

The Christmas Food and Craft Fayre, held in the Granary Farm Shop on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th December, will showcase the finest local produce. The Fayre will offer an array of festive delights and provide an ideal opportunity to sample a selection of regional produce on sale in the shop.

In addition, customers will be able to pre-order their meats, cheeses and groceries easing the stress associated with Christmas shopping, safe in the knowledge that their seasonal meal has been prepared, cooked, matured or grown in their local area.

The popular four course dining and overnight accommodation in the stately home is set to return offering a first class cuisine and luxurious mini break as Andrea Webster, Weston Park’s marketing executive explains.

She said: “Everyone likes to celebrate Christmas in a different way and we feel Weston Park has so much to offer that we have created a comprehensive festive calendar to cater for all ages and budgets.”

The Christmas Food & Craft Fayre is free to enter.
