Hardwick Hall steps back into 1930's for Christmas

Visitors to the National Trust's Hardwick Hall in Chesterfield will be able to step back in time as the entrance hall is transformed to recreate a 1934 photo shoot for a magazine.

For the first three weekends in December, staff and volunteers will decorate Bess of Hardwick's famous home to recreate a glamorous 1930s Christmas party. The entrance hall will echo the pictures from the 1934 photo shoot of Hardwick Hall, when the property was the home of the Cavendish family.
