MAKE MY WEEKEND | Living North



We’re heading out to catch a display of illuminations, entering a (spooky) new dimension, and making the most of the extra hour in bed before filling up with a Sunday brunch

For something a little different, head to Jervaulx Abbey for an evening of beautiful illuminations. A celebration of life with lights, the Abbey walls will be lit with an array of gorgeous colours and displays. Make sure you’re there for 6:30pm to catch the nightly musical performance, a stunning accompaniment to the visual display. A variety of refreshments will be available, with Heck providing hot food from their food van and the Tearooms open until 9pm. If all this wasn’t reason enough, the event is in support of Herriot Hospice, so there really is no reason not to pop along.

Something for gamers young and old. Ryton Retro 2 is a celebration of all things spooky – just so long as they’re on a computer. Enjoy scary arcade machines, console games and even try your hand at VR. There’s also a dedicated Minecraft and Fortnite zone – even the teenagers will want to get out of bed to go to this one.

The greatest show on earth is about to get even bigger and better – igniting the skies over Sledmere House in Driffield, as the estate’s fourth annual Musical Fireworks Spectacular get a reboot: circus-style. This family-friendly evening of incredible entertainment will include have-a-go circus skills, a funfair and refreshments, all culminating in a truly sensational fireworks display set to music. Sure to be a cracker.

Make the most of that extra hour in bed then head for a late brunch at The Lamp Room in Seaham. They’ve got a mouth-watering array of breakfast and brunch dishes, including their famous ‘Hangover Breakfast’ for those of you who may have over indulged on Saturday night.

This Sunday eve get ready to celebrate the spookiest time of year with this Treat or Treat Walking Tour. Children and big kids alike will be invited to tour the ancient streets of York as they listen to Miss Terry’s terrifying tales. Along the way the ghastly histories of some of your favourite confectionaries will be revealed such as ‘Kit Bat’, ‘Terry’s All Ghould’ and ‘Rowntree’s Fright Pastilles.’
