York Mansion House is excited to be opening its doors to the public in a new and engaging way. In the coming months we will be hosting events from our grand opening to food and wine tasting evenings. 2018 will see afternoon teas in the glorious State Room, candlelight tours, lectures on Georgian society to name a few. You may even be watching a retro film on our cinema snug nights or a bit of moving theatre supporting local talent.
WEDNESDAY 12 DECEMBER - SUNDAY 23 DECEMBER
Our festive trail is the perfect accompaniment to explore the house and learn how people celebrated Christmas in York 300 years ago.
You can either pick one up for free at our admissions desk, browse the online version above or download the PDF copy here.
TUESDAY 18 DECEMBER - SUNDAY 23 DECEMBER
A tale of ghouls, ghosts and - with your help - barrels of festive cheer. We join Marley over a sumptuous two course feast, and some potent potion to keep off the winter chill. Through parlour games, Christmas songs and a little spirited trickery, we must warm the heart of the bahhumbugging miser, everyone's favourite festive misanthrope, Scrooge. A show about Christmas spirit, caring for those we love, and having a damn good knees up couldn't be a more perfect way to warm a cold winter's evening.
The full two-course sharing feast includes a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings and a warming dessert to follow presented alongside a late license bar. (Special dietary requests are gladly catered for and should be advised at least 48 hours in advance of the performance by email to firstname.lastname@example.org)
“The whole experience is as merry and magical as Christmas itself.” ★★★★ The Stage
Please note there is no performance on Friday 21 December.
