One property that has Christmas all sewn up is Coombe Abbey. Located centrally in Coventry, England, it has a wide range of comprehensive packages, available to clients and here I shall run through some of the options available to you...
Festive Mediaeval Banquet
Travel back in time for the evening and revel in the frivolity of a 'Medieval Banquet' night!
Come live like Lordes and Ladyes of a bygone era and enjoy a hearty feast, fit for a King! Fun, feasting, drinking, laughter and song will fill your evening and leave you wondering why you never booked anything like this before!
Dress smartly or in full Mediaeval attire to enhance your experience.

Festive Sunday Lunch
A traditional Sunday lunch is always a welcome sight, enhanced only by the festive season, when the food and ambiance really get you into the spirit of things.
Father Christmas will also make a very special appearance, welcoming all children under 12 with a Christmas gift.
Available on 29 November, 6, 13 & 20 December 2015.
Courtiers Carolling at Coombe

Christmas Murder Mystery
'Murder' and 'Christmas' aren't a typical combination, however, at Coombe murder can be fun! It is Christmas, 1843. There is carol singing, festive cheer, and...murder!
The Cloisters dining room has been laid to perfection; enjoy a glass of wine with dinner as you investigate ‘whodunnit’? Can you figure out the perpetrator before dancing the night away at the post-dinner disco?
