Dennis Severs’ House at 18 Folgate Street, Spitalfields, is more than just a time capsule. It is both a breathtaking and an intimate portrait of the lives of a family of Huguenot silk-weavers from 1724 to the dawn of the 20th Century. As you follow their fortunes through the generations, the sights, smells and sounds of the house take you into their lives. It was Dennis Severs’ intention that as you enter his house it is as if you have passed through the surface of a painting, exploring with your senses and imagination a meticulously crafted 18th Century world.

The ‘Exclusive Silent Night’ visit includes a magical wander through the house’s ten rooms, in silence, after which you will be able to sit down by a roaring fire in a room of your choice. Champagne will be served and the curatorial team will be present to answer any questions you may have in an informal atmosphere. These evenings are magical and designed for guests who would like to exclusively experience the house and find out more about its creator, Dennis Severs.

The winning bid will receive:

Two tickets to a 'Exclusive Silent Night' experience at Dennis Severs' House and a DVD about the house.
