Raby is a magical place at Christmas time with so many truly special events held against the dramatic floodlit backdrop of the Castle and inside its walls, where the Grand Entrance Hall is beautifully decorated for the season with a roaring fire and a magnificent Christmas tree.

Christmas Celebrations for Local Businesses

The Castle is an extra special place to hold your workplace Christmas celebrations and we are pleased to be offering Afternoon Tea in the Castle for local businesses and groups again this year. Call us on 01833 660207 to discuss your preferred date.

Fireside Stories and Songs with Father Christmas

Father Christmas always tells us how much he enjoys his time at Raby Castle in the run up to Christmas. He will be pulling up his favourite chair beside the fire once again this December and will have a special gift for each child who comes to join him for stories and songs. Tickets will be released in early September and will be announced first to our newsletter subscribers. Sign up to our newsletter here.

Christmas Shopping

Our Stables Shop will be full of beautiful gifts and decorations during November and December. Join us on 7th November for a glass of fizz and an exclusive evening preview of this year’s Christmas collections.

From 30th November we will be selling Christmas trees grown on the Raby Estate, wreaths and foliage to decorate your home for Christmas and on the weekend of December 7th and 8th our hugely popular Festive Market returns to the Coach Yard with stalls selling locally produced food and drink, crafts and gifts. Look out for details of out Festive Craft Workshops too.
