1 Dec 2017 - 2 Jan 2018

Our yearly Winter Festival rings in the season with Yuletide surprises all around our site, many of them free to enjoy. Wander through our Winter Market to sip mulled wine, select handmade gifts and eat festive treats. See sparkling shows with all the family, sing-a-long to our winter choirs and give back in our pop-up charity shops. Winter is coming... and we can't wait.

Support our year-round festival programme

Help us to be a place where everyone can experience world-class art and culture that can stimulate, educate and inspire.
