On the 18th December we’ll be glued to Channel 4’s Matt Baker: Travels with Mum & Dad. And, why is that? Because our very own Barley Hall will feature in this episode.

The team at Barley Hall were thrilled to welcome Matt and his mum Janice for a morning of festive medieval crafts, including a fabulous kissing bough, which is hung in the Grand Hall.  Anthony and Fiona from our team provided a guided tour and an instructional session on working with festive foliage!

If you’ve never watched the programme Matt Baker takes his parents on some memorable, easy-to-reach excursions around their beloved North East, as they relive old memories and make new ones. 

So, we hope you’ll tune in on 18th December at 9pm – or, if you miss it live, it will be available free on the Channel 4 website.

If The Bakers inspire you to visit Barley Hall then you can find everything you need to know on our website, including open times, prices and accessibility information
