Experience the York Minster Christmas Tree Festival, set inside the medieval Minster this year, with around 40 trees on display in the cathedral’s stunning Chapter House and Lady Chapel.

Explore the trees, which will be decorated to individual themes by local businesses, schools and charities, before adding your own Christmas message to a tag on the festival’s prayer trees.

The festival will open on Saturday 3 December at 10.00am with a special  Saturday Mornings at York Minster  session for families, and run during general admission times until Thursday 5 January.

Entry is free with general admission.

Please note, the trees may feature flashing lights.
