Yuletide Museum at Night

Friday 30 November 5-7pm


A rare chance to visit a selection of the Museum’s atmospheric buildings at night – all ready for Christmas. Dressed in traditional styles, you can wander through the buildings and find out about festive traditions in a preview of our Victorian Christmas weekend.

Enjoy carols by the tree in the traditionally dressed Manor House with The Chanticleer Singers from 5:30pm.

Say hello to Father Christmas – Ryedale Lions’ Santa Sleigh will be here from 6:15pm.

Have a go at mangle printing in our reconstructed Victorian Wash House to create a Christmas card or tag.

Treat yourself to a wassail punch, mulled wine or a mince pie served hot from the Victorian range – a perfect way to start the festivities this year.

You’ll also have the chance to browse for great gifts and stocking fillers in the Museum’s shop.
