The Station announces ‘biggest ever’ Christmas line-up

The Christmas tree at The Station.

The Station in Richmond has announced a busy festive line up.

The programme in the run up to Christmas includes workshops, music, festive films and late night shopping events.

Chris Brown, general manager of Richmondshire Buildings Preservation Trust, who operates the venue, said: “Restrictions last year meant that sadly people weren’t able to get together at Christmas, and our planned events had to be put on hold.

“This year we want to make sure that Christmas is extra special so we’re pulling out all the stops to give people the opportunity to celebrate the festive period together at The Station.

“Our Christmas line up is our biggest yet, and with something for everyone to enjoy, our events are guaranteed to get you feeling festive.”

The attractions start with a late night shopping event tonight.

The Station will open late every Thursday evening from until December 16.

The Station Shop, The Angels Share Bakery, Kacao Chocolaterie and Richmondshire Brewing Company will open.

There will also be stalls selling unique gifts, art, and local produce.

A present wrapping service will be on offer at The Station Shop and gift vouchers for use in either The Station Shop or The Station Café | Bar will also be available.

Children can meet Father Christmas in The Present Sorting Office at The Station during the late-night shopping evenings.

On selected evenings, families can also enjoy rides on a miniature Christmas train at The Station, and have a go at a Christmas activity trail at The Station, with competitions and prizes to be won, available at The Station Shop every day.

On Sunday, December 5, The Station will host three Christmas wreath workshops, where visitors can make a  natural door wreath with local florist Heather Roberts.

The Station is also the venue for a vintage Christmas fair on Saturday, December 11 featuring gorgeous seasonal vintage homewares, reused and repurposed items and other unique gifts.

The Station Café | Bar will be serving a three course Christmas menu from Thursday, November 25 to Thursday, December 23, as well as festive afternoon teas.

December also sees the return of The Station Café | Bar’s popular comedy dining events, with an Absolutely Fabulous performance on Saturday, December 4.

Visitors are invited to see in the New Year in style at The Station Cafe | Bar, with an evening of food and dancing to welcome the start of 2022.

Throughout December there will also be festive films including screenings of The Polar Express and It’s A Wonderful Life at The Station Cinema, as well as live music, with performances from the Reeth Brass Band, The Dales Youth Choir, The Richmond School Saxophone Band, The Dales Pop Choir and The Charlotte Jacqueline School of Dance.
