Explore our Christmas events for 2017:
An unforgettable evening watching the owls of the Hawk & Owl Centre flying in low light in the illuminated gardens, Christmas Owls by Moonlight ran first during last winter to great audience acclaim. We’re pleased to stage this event again, which includes a hot supper and two displays, on Saturday evenings in December.
Launched in 2016, Christmas Teas in the Castle are selling out fast for weekend dates in November and December 2017.
Just for groups, Festive on the Wild Side is a joint package with our neighbours at the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway and combines a visit to the Castle decorated for Christmas, the Hawk & Owl Centre bird of prey display and a festive round trip to Dalegarth in beautiful Eskdale on the railway in the afternoon. Includes a light lunch at Muncaster and mulled wine and mince pies at Dalegarth.
For schools and youth groups, we offer Christmas Victorian Tours in the Castle where youngsters can discover how life was below stairs at Christmas in a great house in the C19th.
Of course Muncaster is the perfect place for group festive outings. Contact us for information about group Christmas lunches or afternoon teas, available in the Old Laundry function room or in the Castle itself decorated for Christmas, c0mbined with our gardens and Hawk & Owl Centre entry ticket. For a very special group Christmas event, how about an evening dinner in the Castle’s state rooms? Prices on application, subject to availability.
