Beverley Festival of Christmas Weekend

Event Full

Back by popular demand we return to the fabulous Beverley Friary. An upmarket hostel weekend in the beautiful town of Beverley for Spice exclusive use. Nestled in the heart of the beautiful East Yorkshire market town of Beverley, the Friary is a truly fabulous retreat in the centre and a stone's throw from the marketplace.

Our visit should coincide with the Beverley Festival of Christmas on the Sunday. Now in its 25th year the festival has grown from a small affair with just a handful of stalls to what is now one of the largest events in East Yorkshire. Approximately 140 stalls will be attending the event, alongside the well-loved Local Food Theatre Marquee. It is anticipated that thousands of people will attend, making it one of the busiest days in Beverley calendar. Starting at 10:00am on the Sunday, the festival runs until 4:00pm, with a wide range of different foods from around the region available to purchase and enjoy. Please note that the date of the 2021 festival will not be finally confirmed until September. We hope and expect it to coincide with our break, but we cannot guarantee this.

On Friday evening we will have a meal at King's Head (not included in price) and afterwards we can sample Beverley’s many fine pubs. Beverley is proud of its musical culture hosting the famous Beverley Folk festival every year so there are always a few pubs that have live bands at the weekends and there will certainly be a chance to visit the gas lit Nellies aka: White Horse Inn - a quirky 16th century coaching inn boasting a great selection of beers and ales. Just around the corner from The Friary is The Sun Inn, featuring live music every weekend.

We will have a full cooked breakfast on the Saturday morning (breakfast included in price) with a continental breakfast on Sunday. Also included is a festive buffet on the Saturday evening.

Tour guide Paul Schofield will join us on Saturday morning at 10:30am to take us around the town on a fascinating history tour.

Stay Another Day! This year, we also have the option to extend your stay to a third night (Sunday night) for just £18 more, which includes your stay on the Sunday night and breakfast on Monday. We'll eat out on Sunday evening at additional cost (pay on the day). We'll have a guided walk out of town on Sunday afternoon after you have had plenty of time to explore the festival markets.

The great thing about these weekends is that you don’t have to go home after a long day visiting outstanding Yorkshire towns and countryside. If you’ve never been on a Spice weekend before give it a go. If you have been before you’ll know how popular they are! Whether you’re a brand new member, an ‘old hat’ or one of the many that have been with us for a little while, and you like having fun with other like-minded Spice members then this really is a great weekend to book. It’s also a great starter weekend if you’ve not been away with us before - very laid back - you can do as much or as little as you choose; it’s your weekend away. But, be warned – our weekend breaks do sell really, really quickly so get your booking in now to avoid being disappointed.

The photo shows us in Millhouses Park last Sunday towards the end of our walk and as we looked forward to a tasty Sunday lunch! This combination of a walk followed by a meal makes for a great afternoon out, so we have more for you. Look out for these ones coming up ... Leeds Canal Walk and Lunch, Canal Walk: Huddersfield to Brighouse with lunch at Meze Brighouse, Sunday Walk and Lunch: Fulford and Heslington, and Sunday Lunch at the Fox and Hounds Newmillerdam and optional walk. We'll also be arranging a new date for the Walk and Sunday Lunch: Whirlow Hall and Ecclesall Woods very soon, so keep an eye out for that one!

What an amazing bank holiday weekend we have had, with Spice Yorkshire members all across the country, from Scotland to the Isle of Wight. Firstly, there was the Edinburgh Festival Weekend with 40 Spice members descending on the city and joining Jamie to enjoy several shows. In Northumberland, we had the Hadrian's Wall Walking Weekend with Walkwise. In Derbyshire, Lauren hosted the three-night Dovedale weekend at the country house hostel in Ilam, with fabulous walks each day. One Spice Yorkshire member ventured into Wales for the Tenby and Pembrokeshire Coast Walking Weekend. Meanwhile, Pam hosted the Isle of Wight weekend in Shanklin covering everything from swimming, sunbathing, walks, afternoon tea, pubs, Shanklin Chine, Freshwater Bay, Alum Bay, boat trips, Osbourne House, Cowes, Ventnor and even riding in a tank at the Military Museum. There's a photo below of some of the group by the sea. If you missed out on this one, Pam is doing it all again on the May Bank Holiday.
