Christmas at Cliffe Castle will be extra special this year as alongside the festive celebrations we will be holding the Grand Opening of the Heritage Lottery Funded Cliffe Castle Park.
The 4.5 million restoration of the park has been going on since July last year. Bradford Council successfully bid £3.5 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund's Parks for the People programme., and provided the rest of the funding itself. The project has seen the restoration of original buildings, features and statues in the park, which have all been brought back to their original Victorian splendour.
There will be a wonderful range of festive activities and exciting entertainment taking place throughout the museum and the park including a community Christmas market, Herr Jens Brass Oomph Band, carol service and visit from Father Christmas! The day will be the first time the doors of the new glasshouse range will be open for public viewings.
