Christmas Canapé Reception

Mingle under the holly with friends and colleagues this winter, with an exclusive Christmas canapé reception at Barley Hall.

Each year we deck the hall in beautiful decorations to create a venue unlike any other; a merry townhouse straight from the middle ages, perfect for parties and celebrations.

Shake off the cold and enjoy a cosy evening within this former home of the Lord Mayor of York. Plus, make your night even more special with a range of modern and medieval options to keep your guests entertained.
