Christmas in the Courtyard 

Every Weekend from 5th December until 20th December

(10.30pm - 4.00pm Daily)

Come and join us for a festive weekend at Rufford Abbey this December.  Running every weekend throughout the holiday season we will have a number of craft and gift stalls located in our twinkle lit courtyard.  You will be able to soak up the Christmas spirit with the sounds and smells of winter with carols, mulled wine and mince pies to enjoy. 

We will be operating a one way system in and out of the courtyard to ensure social distancing guidelines are adhered to. 

Free to enter (normal parking charges apply)


5th & 6th December

12th & 13th December

19th & 20th December 

If you are interested in taking a stall please contact 

(please note that we are unable to accept food and beverage traders this year due to the shortage of space)
