Excitement is mounting at Sewerby Hall and Gardens as the venue prepares for the Weekend of Christmas this Saturday and Sunday (1 and 2 December).
The weekend will include husky sled rides, brand new Rusticus Theatre Arts’ Nutcracker Adventures, and traditional carol concerts from Buckrose Concert Band and the New International Chamber Ensemble, all complemented by seasonal face painting and a display by the York Birds of Prey Centre.
There will also be children’s activities in the house hosted by the council’s museum team, alongside seasonal workshop sessions in the zoo. Traditional fare will be available from the Clock Tower Café.
The house itself is decorated in all its festive glory, and includes the return of the popular exhibition, ‘The Making of Christmas’.
Facility manager, Marie Gascoigne said: “The house looks stunning, and all these activities add up to a great weekend of festive fun, with something for every member of the family!”
