Twilight carols by the fireside
19 December 2018 - 19 December 2018
This Christmas, enjoy twilight carols by the fireside at Burton Agnes Hall 

Burton Agnes Hall is inviting visitors to enjoy a truly magical Christmas experience. On Wednesday 19th December from 5-9pm, visitors can explore the Hall and its grounds at twilight, when topiary bushes will be strewn with Christmas lights, the fire in the Great Hall will glow warmly and there will be twinkling lights around every corner.

Visitors can look forward to seeing the Hall’s stunning Christmas displays, with their customary mix of traditional and contemporary styles. A massive, bountifully decked Christmas tree from the estate’s forest – this year in traditional red, gold and glass – is always a superb feature. 

As usual, the decorations are predominantly handcrafted, using much natural produce from the Walled Garden. This year there is an abundant crop of hops flowers that will be used in the Hall; much fresh, fragrant eucalyptus and a series of lollipop-shaped bay trees. Amongst many new schemes, there will be a music-themed tree; many swans a-swimming in the dining room; a very regal King’s Bedroom; and a snowdrop-themed Garden Gallery to anticipate our own woodland’s spring snowdrop carpet.

On the evening, the Driffield Middle 8 Singers will billow out festive carols in the courtyard, and Simon Cunliffe-Lister will host a grand piano-led carolling singalong by the fireside.
The courtyard cafe will serve festive fare including mulled wine and mince pies, and the courtyard shops will be open, perhaps for some Christmas present gathering. The Christmas Shop is ready to help festive visitors recreate some of the Burton Agnes Christmas magic at home and the gift shop is ideal for seeking the perfect Christmas present for a loved one.
