Events at Jervaulx Abbey


Jervaulx in Lights

in 2017 we started this spectacular event, together with Countryside Events.  Over 3 years of events we have raised over £10,000 for local charities.

in 2017 we supported Help for Heroes 

in 2018 we supported Herriot Hospice Homecare

in 2019 we supported Yorkshire air ambulance 

in 2020 the event had been cancelled due to Covid, we hope it will return.

We can offer group guided tours for a first-hand insight on history and the running of a privately-owned abbey, with owner Ian Burdon.
