This will be the third year running that Harewood has opened for Christmas and it’s set to be their best celebration yet. They’ve teamed up with one of Yorkshire’s most acclaimed artistic duos, Davy & Kristin McGuire, to create an immersive audio-visual experience inspired by the house and its secrets. But that’s not the only reason to go – the grounds will be lit up with twinkly lights, the bird garden will be open as usual and they’ve got a full programme of events lined up for you. From live music to cooking demonstrations, festive markets and craft workshops, you might need a return visit.

And that’s exactly what our lucky winner will get. Your first visit will include two tickets to their Festive Wire Stag Head Workshop on Friday 6th December 2019. With the help of sculptor Chris Moss, you’ll make your own deer head, using simple techniques to manipulate chicken wire into shape. They’re finished with twig antlers and you can take yours home to display indoors or outdoors. While you’re here, you can get a sneak peek of the installations inside, but you may want to save it for your return.

That’s right, you’ll be welcomed back to Harewood House on 7th or 8th December 2019 for their first Christmas Markets Weekend. Round up your besties because you’ll get four tickets to the house and there’s loads of shopping to be done. You can pick up cool and unusual gifts by incredible craftspeople like Black Dog Pottery, AH Jewellery and Priory Vodka. There will be plenty of tasty food too, so you can fuel up for an afternoon of exploring while enjoying the live music.
