Get festive with the Friends!
Saturday 4th December 2021
For the last few years, the Friends of Rowntree park have run Christmas wreath-making workshops and they’ve proved popular – so we are excited to announce tickets for our December 2021 sessions are on sale now!
Not only are we offering sessions, but as the ‘take away kits’ also proved popular last year, we are also offering pre-packed kits for those who’d rather create at home (or host a little event with friends).
The Christmas wreath-making session/kits give you the chance to create your own natural festive wreath made from foliage foraged from the park and local area. This is always a popular event and sells out fast. It’s a lovely community activity and also raises some money for our charity (the Friends help maintain and improve Rowntree Park).
Sessions are running on Saturday 4th of December at 9.30 or 11am.
We run the sessions on the cafe balcony (and some limited space inside). York Explore run the cafe and have kindly hosted the event for a number of years – so why not grab some coffee and a croissant as you craft! The sessions are self-led. we provide the resources, some instructions and are on hand to help if needed, but basically, it’s down to you to create as you wish!
To book your tickets for the session click on the button below.
£13.50 for Members

Christmas Wreath Packs
With your take away wreath kit, you can opt either to take home and craft in the warmth with Christmas music blaring, OR arrange to meet some friends in the park and find yourself a space- hijack a table in the railed gardens or maybe head to the log story circle. Stick on the thermals and pack that thermos with coffee or mulled wine.
Packs can be picked up on Saturday 4th of December from 10am-12pm (Head to the cafe via the slope and we will have a stall). If you cannot pick up that date, the packs can also be collected from an address near the park from Sunday 6th December until Saturday 11th December. You will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a convenient time if you cannot attend pick up on the 4th December.
