I was commissioned to create an installation piece for the Christmas Tours at Hillsborough Castle representing Day 11 and Day 12 of the Twelve Days of Christmas song – “Eleven pipers piping, Twelve drummers drumming.”

The piece was installed in Lady Grey’s study, the final room of the tour, running every day throughout the Christmas period 2019.

Twelve Days of Christmas at Hillsborough Castle: Day 12

On the twelfth day of Christmas Hillsborough Castle gave to me… twelve drummers drumming 🎶In 1953, following the coronation, Her Majesty The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh stayed at the Castle. The royal couple surprised the crowd by stepping outside, in full evening dress, to receive two Lambeg drummers. 🥁Explore the Twelve Days of Christmas at Hillsborough Castle until 5 January 🎁 bit.ly/HCGChristmas#HillsboroughChristmas
