Christmas at Holker, Last Three Days

A fantastic month of festive celebrations has just three days left to run.

A whole range of festive activities from carol singing to festive crafts and cookery demonstrations to teas with Santa have all contributed to an extremely successful Christmas opening at Holker.

Sarah Ross, Head of Visitor Services commented " After last year's extensive snow falls disrupted our programme of events for Christmas, it has been a real joy to look back on the last few weeks and reflect on a series of successful events. The highlight for me was undoubtedly our evening candlelight opening in the hall. A huge team of people worked so hard on all the decorations this year and to see them in the beautiful, soft candlelight was a real privilege."

The last event of Christmas at Holker is on Wednesday 21st December - Winter Walk and Tea With Santa. The Food Hall, Gift Shop and Cafe remain open until midday on 24th December.

Full house for popular chilli eating competition

This weekend’s damp weather didn’t affect the fiery fun at Holker with a full house for the chilli eating competitions hosted by Darth Naga.  A packed Courtyard watched on as 10 competitors (on each day) took part in the lively competition.   Saturday’s competition was the most entertaining yet with Darth commenting it was best one he had ever hosted - humorous contestants were encouraged by the lively crowd - with Jordan from Barrow taking centre stage.  Joint winners took the trophy on Saturday and Ed Duffy was crowned Sunday’s winner after reaching around 250,000 scovilles.
