Callendar House Christmas

Callendar House Christmas Decoration Brief.
Callendar House is located in Callendar Park, Falkirk. Both are owned by Falkirk Council and operated by Falkirk Community Trust, a charity established in 2011 to run the culture and leisure services previously provided directly by the Council. The House is an A-listed historic building and functions as a 4-star heritage attraction, museum and archive. It also has a teashop which is presently being redeveloped with a stronger identity and improved offer.
Falkirk Community Trust is providing festive period activity in 2016 at several of its venues – traditional panto at Falkirk Town Hall, Christmas cinema programme at the Hippodrome in Bo’ness, and the Fire and Light for New Year at the Helix. Because of its character and setting, Callendar House is the principle focus for the Trust’s developing Christmas activity.
Christmas has been marked at Callendar House in previous years by low-key events and activity which fits with existing activity and facilities in the House – a large Christmas tree in the main entrance hall, seasonally-orientated workshop programmes for families and schools, Christmas presentations in the historic kitchen, Christmas menus in our tearoom and seasonal stock in our shop. These have gradually built Callendar House’s reputation as a Christmas venue, and so in 2016, we are keen to take that reputation further so that the House becomes an essential part of people’s Christmas experience.
For 2016, ‘Callendar House Christmas Adventure’ will be a pre-booked, paid-for, timed and ‘stage-managed’ event requiring high-quality decoration of parts of the House. The event description is as follows:
a. An introduction in the reception area and professionally decorated Christmas tree and main entrance hall.
b. Visitors will be then be welcomed by an elf in the first-floor morning room. Coffee/Hot Chocolate and light snack (Mince Pie/Shortbread). Elf will be there at all times to engage with visitors. Catering will be assisted service which visitors then take to tables while waiting for next stage of visit. The morning room will be decorated and visitors will have time to soak up atmosphere.
There will also be a self-guided ‘treasure hunt’ that visitors will get at this point and at least one clue will be included in this part of the house. During the experience the treasure hunt will take visitors on a pre-determined route around the House taking in features and aspects of Callendar House offer. The timing for b is approximately 30 mins.
c. Visitors for each times slot are then moved down to the Georgian Kitchen
d. Entrance into the decorated Georgian Kitchen in groups of 20 max, meet cook/character – opportunity to do taster. Fire on and soak up the traditional Christmas atmosphere.
e. Cook announces special visitor, gather and wait/build up. Santa enters from scullery to speak to group; hands out small token to signal end of audience with Santa. Allow approx. 15 mins for c-e.
f. Exit by same route and into ‘Cromwell stair’ area, then directed through Park Gallery to continue with treasure hunt around the house looking for other Christmas clues and exit out through gift shop/main entrance (this route avoids passing the queue to enter Santa experience. f is approximately 15 mins with the potential for the treasure hunt to continue to other parts of the house. Check in with reception for completion and evaluation/dwell time.
This event will be offered on a daily basis 21 November – 24 December inclusive.
