Well-known characters from Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol were brought to life in a lively performance.

An actor took on the role of Charles Dickens and shared the magical story with visitors.

Characters from Alice in Wonderful also took part, including the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts and the Mad Hatter, who invited guests to his tea party.

The heavy snow at the weekend provided a magical backdrop around the Tudor mansion.
