Nordic Inspired Christmas at Prince Hall

If you?d like to avoid the normal hustle and bustle of Christmas, Come and join us at Prince Hall for our Nordic Inspired Christmas.

This year we will be celebrating the festive period with Scandinavian menus and decor with Nordic style walks across historic Dartmoor, where the Reindeers, wolfs and brown bears once roamed.

For when you?re not enjoying the delightful treats and Nordic walks unwind, take in the views and warm your toes by our log fires.

Christmas Eve

The Nordic countries have perfected the art of staying cosy in the winter with the warm glow of candles and intimate hygge atmospheres. Instead of Christmas Day, Scandinavians dig into their Yuletide meals on Christmas Eve.

Scandi Christmas celebrations involve an evening feasting on traditional foods. In Finland they call it Joulupoyta, and in Norway, Julaften, gathering round the table to enjoy classic Scandi dishes join us for a Nordic Taster Menu including hot glogg (gleug;spiced wine punch), cool cured salmon, roast pork with crispy crackling, spiced red cabbage, caramel potatoes, creamy homemade gravy and applesauce trifles

Ice Warrior, Jim McNeill will Host and give a short presentation of the Bokse dag (Boxing Day) activities.
