An annual Christmas fair opens at Hatfield House tomorrow.

The Christmas Frost Fair returns to the grounds of the Hertfordshire stately home from Thursday, November 16 to Sunday, November 19.

Held in The Old Palace, the childhood home of Elizabeth I, the Riding School, Stable Yard and heated marquees on Palace Green and George’s Car Park, the Christmas Frost Fair will feature up to 240 stands of exciting, unusual and original gift ideas for all the family.

Craftsmen and women will be showing off their skills, and choirs, dancers and street entertainers will be providing entertainment throughout the fair.

There will be a mouth-watering array of food and drink on offer, as well as mulled wine.
