Covert Christmas

Saturday 23rd December to Sunday 7th January


‌Become a roundhead spy this ‘Covert’ Christmas at the National Civil War Centre. The Civil War is over, Christmas has been banned by the Roundheads but one man is still partying! Walter Hogbrawl just can’t leave Christmas alone; he’s been spotted carrying out banned Christmas traditions - feasting, putting up holly and ivy, engaging in general frivolity - and he must be stopped!


Visitors can take on the role of Roundhead spies and try to catch Walter in the act by following our family-friendly festive trail. There will be a reward for any information that could lead to his arrest so come along and join in the search for this Christmas-loving Cavalier!




Free with standard admission. Families can get 20% off admission which applies to any size group with a paying child for the duration of the activities.
