What's on at Hylands

 

Please note that from 1 April, there will be an automatic transaction fee of £1.50 on all ticket purchases.

 

 

Our very popular Christmas Fair offers free entry to crafts, gifts, decorations, fine foods and drink, something for everyone! Over 160 stalls are sprawled across the Stables Visitor Centre, Grand Pavilion, outdoor areas and within Hylands House, whilst entertainment is provided throughout the day.

 

See the House and Stables lit up after dusk and take in the festive atmosphere with a hot toddy.

 

Fright Night Xtra

The brand new Fright Night Xtra Halloween event takes you through Hylands Park after dark and joins BAFTA award winning special effects with Scare Award winning script writers to take you on a trail like no other.

 

Uncover the grisly history of Hylands Estate which has been hidden from the public for centuries and features distressing stories and tales of real life people that have lived and died on the grounds.

 

With plenty of festive cheer and fun for all the family, come along and see Santa in his Christmas fun show and Grotto.


Grab a handful of magical elf dust with Timbo, Santa’s head elf from Santa’s workshop. As he
tells you the story of ‘’The Night Before Christmas’‘ he will also train your children how to be an elf to help Santa, along with Christmas balloon modelling, lots of Christmas fun and prizes!
