Christmas at Compton Verney

Visitors to Compton Verney can enjoy three Christmas weekends on 29th and 30th November; 6th and 7th December, and 13th and 14th December, offering a last chance to see the current exhibitions - Jack B. Yeats, Masquerade and Spectacle: The Circus and the Travelling Fair, and Oskar Kokoschka: Exile and New Home 1938-1980 – and experience a host of festive activities.  The weekends include:

Carol concerts at 12 noon, 1.30pm and 3pm, in the gallery’s magnificent Adam Hall.

A specially decorated winter space, with a resident winter wizard.

Storytelling inspired by the gallery’s collections and suitable for all ages.

Family workshops to create Christmas cards and decorations.

There is a special menu of seasonal delights in the gallery’s award winning café, and the opportunity to purchase a range of unusual Christmas gifts from the gallery shop, including books, artists’ materials, jewellery and children’s gifts.

The weekends offer an opportunity to purchase a year's membership to Compton Verney at last year’s prices.  Membership entitles holders to unlimited entry to the gallery for twelve months, and there are three membership types to choose from: £24.00 individual; £44 joint; £50.00 family (2 adults and up to 4 children).

There is also an opportunity to find out more about Compton Verney’s recently launched Adopt a Tree scheme, which invites visitors to adopt a tree in the gallery’s historic parkland, and presents a particularly unusual Christmas gift idea.
