From Saturday 2nd December 2023. You are invited to step back in time to the Tudor era and immerse yourself in our ‘Frost Fair’. Find out about the history of these events, and wander through the frosty trees and icy décor used to recreate this magical time. The barn will be filled with trees and twinkling lights to create a beautiful display. The Abbey will also be dressed for a very frosty Christmas for all to see.
