In Conversation with Katherine Higgins


Highclere Castle, known as ‘The Real Downton Abbey’, bustles with activity at the best of times, but it is never more alive than at Christmas. Lady Carnarvon, wife of Geordie, 8th Earl of Carnarvon, whose family seat is Highclere, talks to broadcaster and vintage expert Katherine Higgins, about the festive rituals that make Highclere magical.

With access to the fascinating archives, Lady Carnarvon will share stories of the illustrious guests that have stayed at Highclere, and the family traditions and recipes that have passed down through the generations.
