The unique festive offering begins with a bespoke candle-making course with Rachel Vosper, one of the UK's leading chandlers. Students select a scent from Vosper’s extensive fragrance library to create a unique Christmas gift, and will leave with the basic skills to create a candle in an etched glass container along with a selection of fragranced decorations.
After the candle-making course guests are invited to enjoy a delicious cocktail at Lowndes Bar & Kitchen, the perfect tipple to warm you through before taking a stroll to the Natural History Museum Ice Rink to enjoy an evening of ice-skating.
