We recently visited Little Moreton Hall, near Congleton to see the festive, seasonal decorations. We last visited in the Spring when we sat in the gardens in the warm sunshine with ducks begging for scraps at our feet. This visit it was very cold and there were no ducks to be seen.
We also went along to listen to Piva a group of musicians who play music of the 16th and 17th centuries. It was all very festive and jolly and warm inside the main hall.
Piva are always such good fun to watch and very entertaining too as they explain about the origins of the music they are playing and the instruments they are using.
The audience are always encouraged to join in the chorus of some of the songs. After singing along to 'Gaudete' amongst others, we were warm, full of festive spirit and ready to find our way home in the bitter cold of the late afternoon.
That looks to have been a really lovely ay to spend the afternoon. I love Little Moreton Hall and it looks lovely with it's greenery and costumed musicians.ReplyDelete
Little Moreton Hall looks rather large! Such an unusual and fancy building. I bet you had a spring in your step on the way home, out in the cold afternoon. xReplyDelete

I love little moreton but have never thought about it having christmas decorations! Chatsworth was rather disappointing this year (and I have to go again this week!) so I must remember little morteton for next year!ReplyDelete
It sounds lovely, never been so maybe next year.ReplyDelete
How lovely! Little Moreton Hall is such a beautiful place. I'd love to see it at Christmas time ... and thanks to you ... now I have!ReplyDelete
Looks very festive. We went to Little Moreton for the first time this year (on the way back from Wales and on your recommendation) and it was lovely. I can imagine it was cold this week though.ReplyDelete
Little Moreton Hall one of the first National Trust properties I visited with my husband after we married in 1980. We still have a painting we bought there, sadly now assigned to attic.ReplyDelete
It still looks as lovely as ever. Thank you for sharing and showing me what it is like at Christmas time.x
Thanks, everyone for your comments. Little Moreton is quite festive in a simple way with lots of fresh greenery, orsnges and spices and yule logs in the hearth:)ReplyDelete
