This event has now passed, find out what else is going on at Fairfax House

Get festive at Fairfax House as the townhouse stays open late for a Christmas evening extravaganza of shopping, festivities, music and the launch of its annual Keeping of Christmas installation.

Fairfax House will be keeping its doors open late so that you can wander through its glittering interiors and soak up the after dark atmosphere and traditions of a Georgian Christmas by candlelight. There will be mulled wine, mince pies, tastings and music from York Theatre Royal Choir – guaranteed to keep you feeling festive throughout the evening. Or you can try your hand at making a spiced orange pomander to take home. And if you've not started your Christmas shopping yet, then this is the perfect opportunity to buy some presents for loved ones with up 20% off in the museum shop for one night only.

Normal Admission fees apply. Museum shop open to all.
