Christmas Events

Child in a Santa hat writing a letter
20 November 2019

Join us for one of our exciting Christmas events this festive season. Start the month off with a Letter to Santa event where your child can write a letter to Father Christmas and have it sent to the North Pole! Just remember to bring a stamp.

Throughout December we’ve loads of fun things for you and your family to do. Christmas is a time for sharing so why not share some rhymes and stories with your little ones at one of our themed Baby and Toddler Rhymetimes.

If you want something more hands on, join us for a Christmas craft event and see what you and your children can make! After all, nothing says Christmas quite like handmade decorations and gifts.
