Laying a wacky and whimsical Christmas table

Festive, frivolous, decked in sparkles – everyone loves an over-the-top table at Christmas.

Join Assistant Curator Iona as she creates an eclectic Christmas table filled with wacky, whimsical objects, from a giant soup tureen shaped like a chicken, to an ornate hot chocolate cup and a flambéed Christmas pudding plate designed by Eric Ravilious – all with a little help from Noel the suckling pig.
