Burton Agnes Hall has announced details of its seasonal events taking place this year, including a bustling street fair, a spooky woodland trail and the hall’s Christmas opening.
During the weekend of the 29th and 30th October, groups will be able to visit Burton Agnes Hall in Yorkshire for a street fair, offering hand crafted gifts and local produce, in the grounds of the Elizabethan stately home.
As well as a variety of stalls, the estate will also have a traditional fair organ playing tunes to entertain browsing visitors, traditional street performances including sword dancing and Morris dancing and fairground rides.
Visitors will also find Burton Agnes Hall’s courtyard shops set amongst the stalls. The home and garden shop and gift shop will offer unusual gifts and souvenirs, as well as seasonal produce. The café will also be open to serve prepared meals, warming soups and home baked cakes.
During the half-term break, groups can visit the estate for a Halloween woodland trail. Clues will be hidden in the hall’s woodland, where dramatic Halloween performances will also be taking place.
The Cunliffe-Lister family and team at the estate will then take the time to dress the hall for its Christmas opening. From the 14th November until the 23rd December, groups can visit the home decorated for Christmas and enjoy the festive atmosphere.
About Burton Agnes Hall and Gardens
The Elizabethan home was built between 1598 and 1610 by Sir Henry Griffith and is a Grade I listed building, alongside the nearby older Norman Burton Agnes Manor House.
The estate has seen 15 generations fill the hall with treasures over the years, from carvings commissioned when the hall was built to French Impressionist paintings, contemporary furniture, tapestries and more modern artwork in recent years.
