Covid Secure December Celebrations

Covid Secure December Celebrations

Christmas may look a little different this year but that shouldn’t stop you getting in the festive spirit and celebrating with your loved ones!

The Old Deanery is fully covid secure and follows all the latest government guidance, so our offering is slightly more limited this year and may change if restrictions tighten further.

A few things won’t change – you can still expect our warm Yorkshire welcome, stunning seasonal food and an exquisite New Year’s Eve celebration. All enjoyed while sat in the shadow of the magnificent Ripon Cathedral.
