As part of York’s Late Night Thursdays, Fairfax House will be staying open late from 5.00pm until 8.00pm on Thursday 3rd December for a special Christmas Evening Extravaganza. Join us for beautiful Christmas music with The Mount’s Chamber Choir as they sing from the Grand Staircase to fill Fairfax House with carols and festive pieces.

You will also be able to enjoy the festive Georgian display, The Keeping of Christmas, and wander through the period rooms decked with evergreens and 18th-century decorations. Don’t miss the spectacular dining room display set with dessert and magnificent sugarwork table decorations. Mulled wine and mince pies will also be available in the Georgian Kitchen.
