When: 7th December 2023, 11:00am
See Revolution House decorated for a 17th Century Christmas with displays of greenery, a kissing bough, and colourful flower arrangements created by our volunteers.
The House takes its name from the Revolution of 1688. Three hundred years ago this cottage was an alehouse - the 'Cock and Pynot' (pynot is a dialect word for magpie) - and it was here that three local noblemen - the Earl of Devonshire (from nearby Chatsworth), the Earl of Danby and Mr John D'Arcy (son of the Earl of Holderness), met to begin planning their part in events which led to the overthrow of King James II in favour of William and Mary of Orange.
Entry to the house and garden is free, however donations are welcomed to help us to keep the House open and deliver great events.
There is disabled access to the ground floor only.
Open 7 to 24 December 2023, Thursday to Sunday 11am to 3pm.
