Swinton Park carols by candlelight

A Charity Christmas Gala will be held at Swinton Park on Friday 1st December in aid of the Archbishop of York’s Youth Trust

The Christmas Gala black-tie dinner includes a champagne reception with a candlelit recital of carols and readings from the 25-strong Christmas choir, from Yorkshire Voices and the Yorkshire Decibelles, followed by a festive three-course dinner in the award-winning Samuel’s restaurant.

The Archbishop of York’s Youth Trust is doing vital work in schools across the North. To date, it has supported over 50,000 pupils in 450 schools to complete its Young Leaders Award. The Award teaches leadership skills and positive social values, supporting students to volunteer and run community projects, such as organising Christmas parties for the elderly or fundraising for their local hospice. Mahatma Gandhi’s phrase, ‘be the change you want to see’ is the core value of the Youth Trust.

‘The charity Gala is a chance to enjoy a rather special Christmas experience in a beautiful festive atmosphere, while giving something back, tapping into the true meaning of Christmas by raising funds for a cause that we passionately support’ – Felicity Cunliffe-Lister, Swinton Estate
