Lady Anne Glenconner, former lady-in-waiting to Princess Margaret, to give audiences at Holkham Hall
The former lady-in-waiting to Princess Margaret, Lady Anne Glenconner is back at Holkham Hall in December to launch her new book.
Lady Glenconner's best-seller last year, Lady In Waiting: My Extraordinary Life In The Shadow Of The Crown, made her a household name. It described her close friendship with the royal princess and also her life growing up on the Holkham Estate.
In November her first novel, Murder on Mustique, is being published and on Saturdays in December she will be at Holkham Hall to give a series of talks about her life and her books.
The estate has lined up numerous events, both indoors and out, in readiness for the festive season, including a Christmas, food, drink and gift market, which takes place on Saturday and Sunday November 28 and 29, as well as weekends throughout December.
There will also be willow weaving workshops where participants can learn how to make Christmas decorations. These are on Tuesdays, December 1 and 15.
A florist will be leading two workshops on Tuesdays, December 1 and 8, showing people how to create table centrepieces and mantelpiece decorations.
There will also be parkland tours on Wednesdays in December and from Wednesday, December 2 to Christmas Eve, there will be an opportunity to buy real Christmas trees from a local supplier.
