Kent: Leeds Castle's Nutcracker Suite


Moated, medieval Leeds Castle near Maidstone opens for a series of festive evening tours. First wander around the illuminated Wood Garden before taking a guided tour of the castle where 10 of the Tudor rooms have had a theatrical makeover inspired by Tchaikovsky's classic Nutcracker Suite. One, the Catherine of Aragon room (where Henry VIII's first Queen hung out in 1530) has gone all Sugar Plum Fairy with a silver-candy tree, a tableau of prancing ballet dancers and lots of glitter. There will be hot chocolate, Christmassy music and an "ice and snow express" shuttling between castle and carpark.


December 15, 16, 17. Adults £15, children £10 (booking essential); +44 (0)1622 880008; leeds-castle.com


Nice to see ballet dancers being put to good use.

Lol, Kitsch as Kitsch can... How did you find out about that? I'll tell my friend, she lives in London and could do trip there :(

(Not sure if I am allowed to post here.) Where did you find that description of "prancing dancers" Jim? I just looked up the Leeds Castle web site and it says "vignette performances by young dancers" which sounds a bit more classy.

Yes, it came from the Grauniad. My source of real world info while living upside down.




PS - As a matter of style, the name Grauniad is always misspelled. Also, I've never been to Leeds Castle, but it looks a beautiful place from photographs, and I'd love to go some day (in the day time). And how did Missgoodytoeshoes find that? Is she a secret Grauniad reader? I did a Google search on the phrase, and the only site that came up was Ballet Talk for Dancers. Fast work, Google!
