Back by popular demand, Karen Longbotton of Finishing Touches Florist in Huddersfield will help you create a live, festive wreath to take home and hang on your door all the way up to Christmas. It's always a brilliant event with everything supplied.

Rings will be ready-mossed by Karen and you'll learn how to correctly add the foliage and as many ribbons, baubles and trimmings as you want! Lots of tips and tricks of the floristry trade will be revealed.

Includes full afternoon tea served at 4. 00pm

Wedding Fair

Each November we host the Holdsworth House Wedding Fair. Unlike our open days, the wedding fair invites many wedding suppliers to exhibit their wares. Come and meet with florists, photographers, car hire companies, bridal wear boutiques, cake makers and jewellers.

Our wedding team will be at the fair too to answer any questions you have about available dates.
