Have your say

The weekend is here and you are probably wondering what to do, either on your own or with the family. Well do not despair, take a look at these ideas.

Castle Howard at Christmas

Enjoy a traditional Christmas at one of Yorkshire’s most impressive stately homes. The property, near York, has been transformed with candles, garlands and roaring log fires.

Father Christmas’ Toy Museum at York Castle Museum

Experience some festive magic as the toys come to life to tell tales of Christmas traditions and rediscover some of the most popular toys of past and present.

Carols at Whitby Abbey (Sunday)

Some of the country’s leading choirs will be performing a programme of carols and festive music. Runs every Sunday until Christmas.

Dick Whittington at Scarborough Spa

This show is about as traditional as pantos get with summer show favourites Ellie Carroll and Stuart Metcalfe, while Phil Beck returns as Sarah the Cook.

Show Boat at Sheffield Crucible (Saturday)

Set against the backdrop of America’s Deep South at the turn of the 20th century, this is a powerful story of love, loyalty and freedom.
