Holkham Hall’s north state dining room will feature a nativity made out of gingerbread men this year. It has been made by local baker Emma Thorburn, who has also created a giant gingerbread house, 3ft by 3ft. There will be delicious smelling gingerbread candles burning to add a rich scent of a festive Christmas.
Visitors will also be able to see a number of candy canes suspended from the ceiling. The curtain goes up on Christmas at Holkham on Saturday.
