Christmas through the ages - Medieval weekends

2&3, 9&10 and 16&17 December.

As part of celebrating Christmas through the ages, join us for the fourth year of our medieval Christmas weekends at Chirk Castle and take a look at how Christmas might have been celebrated 700 years ago.

On weekends join us for a traditional medieval Christmas with all

the trimmings. We will be transforming the Chirk Castle courtyard into a medieval feast for the senses, with the smells, sounds, sights and tastes of traditional medieval festivities.

This year expect:

Medieval characters in the courtyard.
Our jester showing off his circus skills.
Flaming braziers.
Crafts, including table centres, leather working, and wood work.
Medieval festive food and drink to try, including mince pies with meat and spices and traditional gingerbread.

And don't forget that you can also go inside the castle to see our 'Christmas through the Ages' decorations.

Booking not needed (except for Father Christmas grotto). Normal admission charges apply. National Trust members are free.

Some parts of the event will be difficult to access for those with limited mobility. Medieval food options are located in an upstairs space, but staff will be happy to bring any of the items downstairs to you i needed. Please request a copy of our access statement if you have any questions.
