Celebrating Autumn

Celebrating Autumn

On Friday evenings throughout October (plus Saturday 26th October, and the weekend November 1st and 2nd) Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal water gardens will be floodlit for special atmospheric evening guided tours with live choir music and the possibility of spotting an eerie silhouette of a monk.

For a taste of autumn head to Beningbrough Hall, Gallery and Gardens on 6th October and 8th  - 13th October for their apple celebration week. We are imagining apple cakes, apple pies, ciders, juices, sauce for roast pork… Learn about the range of varieties and how they are grown and harvested in the beautiful Gardens of Beningbrough.

Autumnal events don’t have to be outdoors or involve nature. If you are more at home in a nice, warm art gallery then the popular Mercer Art Gallery Open Exhibition is for you. Contemporary regional artists’ works in any media will be displayed to the public free of charge from October 12th to January 11th.

The first spooky event of the season is the Ripon Ghost Walk and museums at night experience for children on Thursday 17th October. A dramatic and entertaining mixture of fun and historic fact bringing the past to life.

Get involved with juicing apples at Swanley Grange between 11am and 3pm on October 19th and 26th using ancient, local apple varieties.

If anyone goes all out to immerse you in an experience, it is Stockeld Park and their Halloween Adventure lives up to its name with witches in the forest walk, spells to cast, ice skating, playgrounds and much more to entertain families. The emphasis is on fun for all ages.

Frightwater Valley is the name given to the spooky version of the Lightwater Valley theme park during the week October 26th - 31st when additional Halloween themed events will be added to the usual fun. Activities are graded by age and the climax every evening is the lakeside fireworks display.

Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd November fun filled days at Lightwater Valley end with spectacular fireworks finales from 5pm over the Swan Lake and set to music.
