Hot chocolate and carols at the Palace

Kensington Palace has become a hub of activity and now is hosting a festive evening of singing Georgian-inspired carols as you wander the State Apartments. An ‘expert explainer’ (you can probably get a GCSE in explaining as well as debating and pronouncing) will guide you through the palace and reveal historical stories of Christmas along the way. There will be a finale sing song around the Palace tree, so take a hat and a scarf. It will be one and a half hours of interest and amusement and you get a glass of mulled wine, a soft drink and mince pies. Tickets £10 for adults and £5 for children under 16. 6pm start. Monday 8th and 15th December. You have to get a ticket in advance at ticketslive

 Also, and this sounds quite a good outing, you can sample the drink enjoyed by Queen Caroline and discover its historic recipe with food historian with a very chocolatey name, Marc Meltonville. On 10th, 11th, 13th, 17th and 18th December and its first come first served three times a day at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.
The hot chocolate session is included in the admission price. That’s a bargain, I’ll have a tot of whiskey in mine. KensingtonPalace
