Harewood's Christmas treat

Harewood House

Harewood house is preparing for its biggest ever christmas extravaganza.

Over the next few weekends the estate is holding a festive celebration, featuring an 18ft tree, a storytelling Father Christmas and traditional cookery demonstrations.

Emily Tannock, from Harewood House, said: "We ordered the trees about eight weeks ago, they arrived on Friday last week and we had about five men taking them off the truck and bringing them in.

Seeing it behind me now it looks like they have been there forever, but getting it into the tub and preparing it and all the tools we needed for that, it was a big job."

On display are Christmas cards - but not any cards - they are signed "With every good wish for Christmas and the New Year 1941 from Lilybet" - also know as Her Majesty the Queen."

Available dates are November 24 and 25, December 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16.
