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.

Refunds are not available on events tickets bought by mistake or due to changes in circumstance, if contacted more than 14 days before the event tickets can be swapped for another time/event or transferred. Please contact us for details
