Christmas by the Hearth

Thanks to everyone who joined us for Christmas by the Hearth in 2021! Pricing and booking details for 2022 will be available in October 2022. Please note that details below are subject to change.

In December, Kings Landing offers the chance to travel back in time to rural, 19th century New Brunswick and experience a Victorian Era Christmas in one of Kings Landing’s historic homes. In December 2022, the Perley, Ingraham, Morehouse and Donaldson homes will be hosting traditional Christmas dinners. You’re invited to take part!

Each home will be in full festive décor inspired by a Victorian Christmas carol:

  • Perley House: “The Holly and the Ivy”
  • Ingraham House: “In the Bleak Midwinter”
  • Morehouse Farm: “Good Christian Men Rejoice”
  • Donaldson House: “We Three Kings”

While you enjoy the company of family and friends, the family hosts will be there to share a variety of 19th century Christmas traditions with you. Christmas dinner in one of the historic homes is sure to make the holiday’s history come alive for you.

Health & Safety: Visitors aged 12 years and up are required to show proof of having had two doses of the COVID-19 vaccination along with a piece of government issued ID to enter Kings Landing. Masks are required indoors and while on wagons but can be removed while you are seated to dine.

Menu: Your holiday dinner will be served family-style, on the table, starting with Cream of Turkey Soup and brown bread. The main course will consist of Roast Beef, Turkey, Herbed Stuffing, Potatoes, Vegetables and all of the traditional trimmings. For dessert, enjoy a tasting of gingerbread and mincemeat pie with tea or coffee. Vegetarian options are available. Most other dietary restrictions can be met with advanced notice.

Attire: For Christmas by the Hearth, you’re invited to dress the part! Those who are able to may book a costume fitting with the Kings Landing Wardrobe Department. Our seamstresses will select one of the Kings Landing costumes and alter it to your size. If you’re unable to attend a fitting in person, you can call and discuss your sizing needs with our wardrobe department. We’ll do our best to have an outfit ready for you – though fit cannot be guaranteed without a proper fitting! To arrange your costume, please contact Kelly Hill, Wardrobe Supervisor, at (506) 363-4967 or by email at kelly.hill@gnb.ca. Costumes are not mandatory!

Transportation: Each party will be escorted to their selected home by horse and wagon.
