Christmas at Nottingham Castle
1 December – 6 January 2021
Join us from the 1 December – 6 January for a magical Christmas at Nottingham Castle.
Throughout December, the Castle grounds will be aglow with festive lights. The Ducal Palace will also be decorated, with two beautiful Christmas trees occupying each stairwell.
There will also be a host of seasonal craft activities taking place in the Galleries, including:
- Make your own Castle Christmas card
- Craft a Christmas cracker
- Make and decorate festive baubles
- Help bedeck our Castle ‘Communitree’ with a personalised ornament, inspired by wintry collection items from our world-class Galleries. Leave a message for a loved one and give thanks to the things that have made you smile this year.
The Castle Shop will also be hosting a series of events throughout November and December, including ‘Ayup, It’s Christmas!’, Museum Shop Sunday and our ‘Share the Light’ competition, in collaboration with local business Paper Starlights.
On 19 December, we will also have carol singers singing a mix of classic and contemporary numbers in the North stairwell from 2.45pm – 4pm.
All activities listed are included in the General Admission ticket. Events happening in the Shop and Visitor Centre are free of charge.
