Special Events

As one of the Lake District's premier family attractions for great fun days out, Muncaster Castle has a full calendar of special events and festivals. Whether for the Bank Holiday, Easter Break, Summer Holiday, Halloween or Christmas, there's so much to see and do, for kids of all ages!

Details of our exciting range of special events for 2014 are situated to the left side of the screen including the Muncaster Festival (25th to 29th May), Picnic Cinema, Outdoor Theatre, our Living History Week in August, and of course our Halloween and Christmas festivities later in the year.

As well as access to the Castle, Gardens, Owl Centre and Maze for no extra charge whenever we are open to the public, Friends of Muncaster get free entry to many special events during the year and discounts off others. See the Friends page for details.

...what will your experience be....? 

Thanks to Robinsons for sponsoring our events
