You’ll see Harewood House like you’ve never seen it before, as you travel through time and witness the State Floor masked in Christmas nostalgia. Celebrating Christmas past, pop culture and Christmas future.

You’ll hear the sounds, play the games and be reminded of Christmas memories from your childhood, and you’ll even have the chance to share your own Christmas memories too. 

In collaboration with architects and designers Studio MUTT, this event will offer a completely unique experience that has never been seen before.

Graham, director of Studio Mutt said: “It’s a familiar yet peculiar installation, playing on our collective imagination at Christmas. We’ve spent a lot of time thinking about those memorable and nostalgic things that sum up our Christmases past, and it’s not what you’d initially expect. It’s the little things, like your Gran’s decorations, the 90s Christmas disco, or sneaking in a drink while your parents weren’t looking.

“We’ve also looked forward and imagined the Christmases of our near future, where lab grown turkeys and hydroponic sprouts are on our table at dinner time.

“We’ve taken the historic uses of the spaces in the house as inspiration for the installations; Christmas music in the music room, a futuristic Christmas banquet in the dining hall and sum up what Christmas feels like in each decade since the 1950s.  We’re really hoping that it will bring a smile to people’s faces and to bring back memories for people”
