Christmas Event

Rievaulx Abbey, Rievaulx, Rievaulx, York, YO62 5LB

Tel: 01439 798228

Carol Concerts


During the first two Sundays in December Rievaulx Abbey will be getting into the Christmas spirit. Join them as the Bilsdale Silver Band play all of your favourite traditional tunes in the atmospheric abbey church.

Stop by for some Christmas cheer as you explore the ruins, or grab a song sheet and join in.

We'd recommend extending your afternoon out with a winter walk from the nearby town of Helmsley. You can find a map with a fantastic walk from Helmsley Castle to the abbey on the English Heritage website – there's nothing better to beat those winter blues.

The abbey gift shop will be open for you to browse as a great alternative to high street shops and there'll be mead tasting too. So wrap up warm and come along for an afternoon of festive fun.
