October half-term activities

Scroll to explore

Be inspired by our Northern Lights events (pictured above) this half-term and project your very own artwork onto the Minster walls.

Using the amazing TagTool technology, budding light show enthusiasts can join us in the Chapter House to show off their creative streak.*

We’ll also have a huge evolving artwork in the centre of the Chapter House which all artists, young and old, are welcome to add their creations to.

All activities are free of charge and included with regular admission to the Minster.

Under-16s and York residents can gain free access to the Minster for sight-seeing all year round, with ticket prices thereafter starting from £9. See our Plan Your Visit page for all admission info.

*Work stations will be subject to availability at the time of your visit.

Make sure you and your family don’t miss out on the stunning Northern Lights performance later in the evenings during half term. Click here for more info and to book.
