The Annual Christmas Tea

One of the loveliest traditions of the Wakefield holiday season is the annual Hartshorne House Christmas Tea. Below, we share some photographs of the house in its holiday finery. As the first snow of the season gracefully descended (just enough to set the scene for the event), hundreds of friends of the Hartshorne House came to share the hospitality and the spirit of the season.
