After Hours Guided Tour of Packwood House

A Very Special Christmas Visit to Packwood House

13th December 2019

 Dear Member,


Earlier in the year we were invited by the National Trust at Packwood House to work in partnership with them on events tailored to the members of the Arts Society Solihull.


We are delighted to bring you our first collaborative event with the staff at Packwood House. On the evening of Friday 13th December 2019 you are invited to join us for pre-tour drinks and nibbles in Packwood’s lovely restaurant to be followed by a bespoke After Hours Guided Tour of the ground floor of the house which will be dressed for Christmas. This will then be followed by coffee and mince pies in the restaurant.


As I am sure you will appreciate this is a marvellous opportunity to see the house bedecked with Christmas decorations which this year follow the theme of The Nutcracker. It is very much a personalised tour solely for The Arts Society Solihull.


You will make your own way to Packwood where there is ample parking. We have been advised to suggest that you wrap up warmly and bring a torch with you as the road across from the restaurant to the house is not lit.


We will meet at 5.30 in the restaurant for a social event including pre-tour drinks and nibbles.

At 6.00pm we will walk across to the house where the tour will last approximately 45 minutes.

We will then return to the restaurant to share our experiences over coffee and mince pies.


The cost of this visit is £13.00 but places are limited due to the capacity of the house.


If you would like to join us please complete the form below and send it with a stamped addressed envelope and cheque (made payable to ‘The Arts Society Solihull’) to Mrs. Rosemarie Cope, 10 Warwick Manor, Solihull, B91 1AU.
