King's Hall in Ilkley to hold Christmas Open Day

There's a chance to take a behind-the-scenes look at Ilkley's King's Hall and Winter Garden as part of the venue's festive open day later this month.

Taking place on Sunday 18th December, the free event will feature performances from three choirs during the day - including the 90-strong Voices of Yorkshire Choir at 11am and the Ukrainian Christmas Choir at 12noon. 

There will also be a lunchtime performance by the Bring Me Sunshine Trio, who'll be playing seasonal music on violin, viola, cello, guitar, percussion and voices.

Mince pies and mulled wine will be available, and for the kids there will be a chance to hunt for the mischievous elves hiding on shelves and collect a present as a reward.

Guided tours of the traditional Edwardian theatre will also take place with access to all areas and a chance to have a look behind the scenes to immerse yourself in the history of King’s Hall and Winter Garden.

The event is supporting local charities Dementia Friendly Ilkley and Ilkley Food Bank with a charity raffle - prizes include tickets to the pantomime at the Alhambra in Bradford and other items donated by local businesses.

The Open Day runs 11am to 3pm on Sunday 18th December.
