Christmas Market

Join us for a flurry of festive shopping from the 9th – 11th December.

Charity Preview Evening: 9th December – 6pm:9pm

Beat the crowds to get your hands on some incredible gifts and treats for yourself at our Charity Preview Evening on Friday 9th December (6pm – 9pm).

There will be a small entrance fee, and a raffle, all in aid of Herriot Hospice at Lambert.


Our bar will open, so why not gather a group of friends, enjoy a drink or two and browse from over 30 local, artisan stall holders. There is also festive food available including bratwurst, raclette, wood-fired pizzas and waffles!

The Christmas Market continues at Thirsk Lodge Barns on the 10th and 11th December.

Father Christmas

For the second year running, we are thrilled that Father Christmas will be visiting Thirsk Lodge Barns.

Firstly he is joining us on the 10th and 11th December, alongside our festive Christmas Market. Please note that there are less crafts available during these two days, however we still have the reindeer, foodie options and you can enjoy some shopping at our amazing Christmas Market whilst you are here!

He is then re-joining us from the 14th December – 22nd December 2022, so make sure you book your family in for a mulled wine, mince pie and visit with Father Christmas and his elves. On these dates there will be more crafts and activities for children, and food and drinks available too. The market is not running over these dates.


Like last year, we are also going to be joined by some of his reindeer on all of the dates that he is here, and the famous guinea pig nativity scene will also be back!

Please take a look at our other Christmas events – and we hope you will make a day of visiting us at Thirsk Lodge Barns!

Wreath Making

We are running two wreath making courses on November 30th to kick start your festive season this year.

The course will be run by the fabulous Wedding and Events Floral Design, who helped us create some incredible wreaths last year – and we are thrilled to have them back again for a few hours crafting to help you head into December ready for the most festive season yet!

Join us for either our day or evening session and enjoy two-hours of getting creative, all supplies included as well as refreshments.
