Goodbye to Santa!

That’s a wrap! Thank you to everyone for visiting Santa’s Grotto at Sulgrave Manor this year. A special thank you for all the hard work of our staff, especially Jackie and Steve for their countless hours constructing the fantastic Grotto from scratch. The Grotto is now closed for 2017, we can’t wait to do it all again next year!

Sulgrave’s Collections Review

We are so excited to welcome our new volunteer collection team Emma and Clare, who are helping us discover more about the items in our care. One of our favourite objects they have researched so far is the ‘smokers tongs’ - used to hold a peat from the fire to light a gentlemen’s pipe!
