500 days of Christmas


Christmas Holiday Events at Leeds Museums and Galleries
24 November –  31 December 2017 


We've got your Christmas holiday covered!

From Lotherton's secret fairy hideaway to a Christmas film screening at Leeds Industrial Museum, we've got just the ticket to get you in the festive mood...

Temple Newsam's popular 500 Years of Christmas weekend is back and better than ever on 9-10 December, with strolling story tellers, Christmassy crafts, a festive farm and more! 

Lotherton are treating us to another round of the popular Christmas Experience festival 24 Nov-23 Dec. Explore the enchanting North Pole, where our little visitors can meet Santa before heading to the magical Twelve Days of Christmas walk. Create fantastic crafts with his helpers in the Elf Workshop, discover the brand new Christmas shop and then head to the house for a taste of Edwardian Christmas! Hint: it tastes a lot like mince pies...

And if that wasn't enough, the team at Kirkstall Abbey have lined up a very special Nativity play inside the abbey on 2-3 December. What could be more festive than that?
