Meet Father Christmas

Suitable for all ages

For a truly magical Christmas treat, come to Trowbridge Town Hall in December and meet our traditional Father Christmas. Father Christmas will be settling into his charming Victorian parlour  decorated with garlands, bells and an enormous Christmas tree, with a large sack of delightful presents ready for all the children he meets. He’ll be joined by a Victorian storyteller and his old-fashioned photographer, and afterwards he has a lovely little craft activity for you to enjoy.

A visit to Father Christmas costs just £10 per child and includes a traditional gift, storytelling, a Christmas card activity and a splendid sepia photograph as a memento. The experience lasts roughly 45 minutes. If you would like to book a SEN session, please contact the Museum at this link or telephone 01225 751339.
