“This year Speke Hall are celebrating and thanking the wonderful Christmas Volunteer Team, led by volunteer Rosemary Brice for decorating Speke Hall with traditional leylandii garlands for the last thirty years. Speke Hall really is quite special at Victorian Christmas time. It’s like stepping back in time and into the most sensational Christmas with the fabulous fragrance of over eighty, five foot fresh garlands; all hand tied and decorated by Rosemary and her amazing team of volunteers. Rosemary and the Christmas Team spend two weeks preparing and transforming the house into a glorious, quintessential Victorian Christmas. We are lucky and grateful to have such a hardworking, dedicated and talented team of festive volunteers to help us create such a magical experience.”
