Please note that there will be no further food available on the day – all lunches are pre-bookable only – although you will be able to buy drinks. Combined meal and admission tickets are available to book here.
Once you have pre booked your festive lunches our catering manager will contact you to discuss your menu choices and any dietary requirements, allergies, etc and to reserve your time slot so please include the best number to contact you on when you book.
Please allow plenty of time to reach the caverns before the event starts. Although we do offer free parking, we are not able to accommodate everyone but parking on the main road leading to the cavern is possible.
NB because of the relatively steep access up to the concert chamber there is no wheelchair access to the cavern.
Take a look at our risk assessment if you are unsure of the effort involved and fitness required. Please call us on 01433 620 534 with any questions and /or to book tickets for the carols.
Join us at Christmas for our festive underground singalong, when the cavern appears even more magical!
This is a popular event so please book early because spaces are limited.
