“In the interest of the health and the well-being of our participants, visitors, employees and partners, given the current situation with COVID-19, we have taken the decision to postpone The Brideshead Festival which was scheduled for June 2020. We will continue to monitor the situation in order to decide when the Festival will be reinstated. In the meantime, please accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused, we are all disappointed to have had to take this decision.”

For ticket holders, please note that York Theatre Royal, our ticketing partner for this event, will be getting in touch with you to offer a full refund. The Theatre itself has also had to cancel many upcoming productions so the Box Office Team are working hard to reach all bookers as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience in this and if you do need to contact a member of the Castle Howard team please email
