'Tis the season at Beningbrough!

Decorating the tree!
Everyone’s been really busy over the last couple of weeks here at Beningbrough, getting ready for Christmas! We’ve been putting up the decorations, planning the events, and making sure we’re ready for a visit from a special guest…

A lovely selection of baubles

The trees are getting there...

This tree is woodland themed!

Storytime with Father Christmas

Father Christmas is having a holiday at Beningbrough before his big day! Join him in the historic library at weekends in December for a story and an early gift, if you’ve been good this year… Booking is essential, so call his elves on 01904 472014 to secure your place. 

Unfortunately Storytime with Father Christmas is now sold out, but keep reading to see other festive activities to get involved with!

Festive Artrageous

Artrageous will be getting a Christmas makeover during the first 3 weekends in December! Drop in between 1 and 3pm to decorate a bauble for your tree, make a stocking to hang at the end of your bed, or create a reindeer sock puppet. Each weekend will be a different theme, so you could try them all! 

Ozzy the Owl needs your help!

Ozzy is really worried about Spike the hedgehog, who is missing! Follow the trail inside and out to help the Beningbrough Buddies see what has happened to Spike…

Christmas Shopping

The shop is now feeling really Christmassy! There's a wide variety of products, so you can get your Christmas shopping sorted for the whole family. 

If you’re in the city centre during the week, pop into the York National Trust shop on Goodramgate (just behind the Minster) for more gift inspiration! The money you spend helps us to look after the special places you enjoy visiting.
