Music & Lights at Fountains Abbey

Couple at Carols by Candlelight at Fountains Abbey

Enjoy the estate in all its festive glory and come to see the abbey ruins lit up with bright with colourful lights. It's sure to get you into the Christmas spirit on a cold winter’s afternoon.

Make your way to the abbey and enjoy the warming sight of the ruins illuminated with all the colours of the rainbow. Explore amongst the grand columns of the nave all aglow with colour and walk beneath the vaulted ceilings of the cellarium, filled with light. It's a stunning sight to see!

Wrap up warm for bright nights out this Christmas at Fountains Abbey

Sing-a-long to your favourite Christmas carols

Listen out and you might catch a carol or two in the cellarium or Fountains Hall. Local choirs and bands will be bringing a little extra festive cheer with impromptu performances. It's really casual so there's no need to sit and get chilly. Stop by if you get chance and feel free to sing and dance along!

Get into the Christmas spirit 

We don't want to disappoint you but...

Please remember that we're closed Friday's throughout November, December and January, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
