What's On

Cannon Hall has a lively programme of events that run throughout the year. Families come to make clay sculptures, hunt ghosts, view art installations and experience outdoor theatre performances.

A highlight of Yorkshire’s food calendar is Pear Day, a popular event in September celebrating Cannon Hall’s annual pear harvest. With craft, activities, stalls and entertainment this is an exciting event for the whole family.
