Celebrate Christmas at Calke Abbey

Calke Abbey, Midlands, candle-lit church at Christmas

There will be something for everyone this Christmas at Calke. Check back here later in the year to find out more about how you can create magical memories this festive season.

On the first day of Christmas…

…Father Christmas comes to Calke! Join us for a magical, lantern-lit evening in the Stableyard to get in the festive spirit. Watch Father Christmas arrive at Calke with his magical reindeer, then join in the lantern-lit parade as he enters the Stableyards to spend an evening in his grotto.

Let the lights lead the way

Discover festive food and craft fairs

‘Tis the season to stock up on festive gifts and treats! Get set for Christmas at a range of food fairs and gift markets, including magical evening events in the Stableyard.

Once you’re all stocked up, treat yourself to a hot chocolate or mince pie in the restaurant, or enjoy in a three-course Christmas dinner, lovingly prepared by the Calke chefs. We'll be revealing our Christmas menu in the autumn.
