Christmas Eve 24th December 2017

Arriving on Christmas Eve with so much magic and anticipation in the air, join us from 6pm for fizz and canapés, as our beautiful carol singers get everyone in the festive mood. Followed by the start of the festivities at 7pm, with a four-course dinner, focused on seasonal produce, created by head chef, John Malia. Then it’s time to get wrapped up warm and walk across the road to Midnight Mass at York Minster. You’ll return to a homemade mince pie and a warming nightcap of mulled wine to toast in December 25th.

Christmas Day 25th December 2017

Wake up to a quiet historic York city centre. Once you’re dressed to impress, we’ll be serving the first glass of Champagne (we’re sure it’s not the last!) at 12.15pm, before it’s time to sit down with family and friends for the most important meal of the year. A four-course festive lunch, which has been lovingly created by our award-winning team of chefs. 
Never forgetting tradition, The Queen’s Speech will be shown in THE COURT. Then it’s time for a relaxing Christmas evening, with our Grand Carving Buffet for those getting peckish. After which there’s time to put your feet up and enjoy your favourite Christmas tipple and maybe take part in our light-hearted Christmas quizzes.

Boxing Day 26th December 2017

Boxing Day means one thing, a day of relaxation and more merriment. We’re sure you’ll have room for a hearty Yorkshire breakfast, then the morning is all yours to enjoy York as it starts to come back to life.

Time to meet an Old Dame

Our favourite time to watch the renowned York Theatre Royal Pantomime, the matinee performance starts at 4.30pm this Boxing Day. Be transported into a magical fairy-tale world as the UK’s longest serving Panto Dame, Berwick Kaler, returns to the stage for his 39th year. Just around the corner from the Dean Court, this year’s performance will be a childhood favourite, Jack and the Beanstalk.
