Christmas Activities at Sewerby Hall and Gardens

The events team at Sewerby Hall and Gardens are finalising their plans for Christmas activities for what is hoped will be the most exciting and fun-filled year yet.

Signalling the start of the festive fun, the house will be decorated in all its glory from Saturday 18 November onwards through until the end of December.

The highlight of the activities will be the very first ‘Weekend of Christmas’, two days packed with new and exciting seasonal events. Taking place over the first weekend in December there will be a brand new activity on Saturday 2 in the form of husky sled rides. Coupled with themed face painting, festive donkey rides, a brand new Christmas photo booth, Rusticus Theatre Arts’ Christmas Adventures, traditional carol concerts from Coastal Voices Choir, local solo soprano Emmie Beckitt and Driffield Salvation Army as well as children’s activities in the house hosted by the council’s museum team. There will be a hot roast chestnut seller on site and traditional fair will be available from the Clock Tower Café.

The rest of the month also promises more entertainment in the form of seasonal Vintage Afternoon Teas, Christmas Orangery concerts by firm favourites Mark Howley and Frank Martin together with more children’s crafting activities in the house.

Facility manager, Marie Gascoigne said “A lot of planning goes into all our events and Christmas is no exception. With everything we have going on, I really feel that we have yet again catered for all ages of visitors – there really is something for everyone.”

Some of the activities do need booking as places are limited. Admission charges apply and some activities have an additional charge. You can also follow us on Social Media.
