Storytime with Father Christmas - rewashed!
Are you sitting comfortably? Then we shall begin. You're invited to join Father Christmas for a new and unforgettable experience in the historic Victorian laundry.
Father Christmas has been on many travels and he needs to do his washing so he's visiting the Victorian laundry at Beningbrough during weekends on the build up to Christmas. He's a very busy man getting ready for Christmas Eve but you're invited to book some time with him.
Weekends 30 November - 22 December 2019
***Sold out for 2019***
What to expect
As a small group Father Christmas will share a brand new and unique tale for his Yorkshire guests - new for 2019. Every child can go to see him, have a photograph taken and if you want to, give him your list. Then there's a small gift to take away and either put under your tree or open early.
There is also artrageous running on the weekends 12noon - 3pm, plan your visit and make time to get creative together in the family art workshop, free for everyone. Artrageous can be found in the Hayloft, accessed by stairs only.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
