VISITORS can experience the Georgian Christmas atmosphere at the historic Coleridge Cottage in this month.

The immersive experience, available on the weekends of December 9-10 and December 16-17, will feature natural garlands and displays prepared by a volunteer team.

Guests will have the chance to experience Christmas as poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge and his family might have celebrated it.

Period-appropriate games, poetry readings in the Second Parlour, and a volunteer choir singing traditional carols will add to the festive ambience.

The poems will include Coleridge's most famous poems, such as 'Frost at Midnight'.

Site Manager, Charlotte Hall said: "A Georgian Christmas at Coleridge Cottage is a special time of year, with volunteers coming together to make the beautiful natural garlands for the visitors to enjoy.

"The quaint nature of the cottage, its immersive interpretation, and the passionate volunteers, creates a warm and festive atmosphere that we cannot wait to share with visitors."

Families can can embrace the festivities by dressing up like a Georgian in the garden room, and those feeling creative can have a go at making a Georgian themed Christmas tree decoration to take home.

Visitors can indulge in festive treats at the tearoom, including mince pies and hot, spiced apple juice.

The shop will be open for those seeking unique presents to gift this Christmas.

The event promises to offer a warm, relaxed experience away from holiday crowds.
