CANCELLED: An Illuminated Christmas at Castle Howard


It is with great sadness that we have to announce that ‘Wish Upon a Frozen Star’, this year’s Castle Howard Christmas event has been cancelled. Following the Government announcement of a second national lockdown from 5th November until 2nd December we have spent a lot of time as a senior team trying to find ways to make the light show event work, however the conclusion is that it is not logistically or financially viable to try to delay the get in period and the opening of the event.

See our website for further information.
