With foliage cut from the grounds, twinkling lights, baubles and Christmas trees, the Abbey will transformed for Christmas.

Visitors will be able to see Newstead Abbey in all its splendour at this magical time of year. There’ll be craft stalls in the Cloisters to pick up Christmas gifts and festive treats in the Abbey cafe.

We’re excited to be holding this annual event again. With floral displays and Christmas trees decorated by local people... Local choirs and singer Johnny Victory will be serenading our guests as they make their way around the House. The Seasonal Craft fair really offers people something unique too! Its Christmas in a bottle.”
