Carols in the Courtyard 2017

Sunday 3 Dec 


A fabulous, festive family fete!


Put the date in your calendar today and don't miss out.

This year, you'll have a chance to meet some real owls in our magical children's area.


There will be face painting, crafting, readings from two popular children's authors, and a visit from Santa at the end.  Bambi the pat pony will be here to greet the children.


Grownups may enjoy mulled wine and live carols while getting a head start on Christmas shopping in our market stalls and gift shop. See the slide show below for a preview of our stall holders this year. 


Don't forget the Tombola, try your hand at our games and take a chance in our raffle to win a clay pigeon shoot for 4, a 3 month full membership at The Health Hub, a bottle of champagne, and many other prizes. 


Raffle tickets will be on sale from our Visitor's Centre and from other venues to be announced.



The Snowlie Queen (yes, the real live Queen of the Snowlies) will bring some of her snowlie friends and regale you with tales of their adventures.  


Beloved children's author, Andy Mitchell will be here to read

from his beautiful books. 


Both Andy and the Snowlie Queen will have their books on sale and be available for signing after the readings.
