Lady Leicester, together with Christmas-connoisseur Catherine Zoll, has spent the year designing the sets and themes.

The pair have collaborated with renowned makers and artists including Claire Owen, Emma Thorburn, Alice King, FX-Live and Natalie Boon, all in preparation for 'Holkham Hall by Candlelight'.

Holkham says visitors will be wowed by "everything from frozen and jungle scenes, to jewelled decadence and a surprising canine masterpiece".
