Green Father Christmas

Meet Green Father Christmas (ticketed)

Wednesday 19 December 2018
4pm - 8pm


This December we are welcoming a very special guest to the Museum – Green Father Christmas (Old Winter). On the evening of Wednesday 19 December you can meet Green Father Christmas, with appointments from 4pm-8pm, plus enjoy late night shopping with craft stalls in our shop and courtyard marquee.

Seated in his chamber, traditionally decorated with seasonal greenery, Green Father Christmas will be selecting presents from a large wooden chest to give to each child that he meets. Every child can spend time with Green Father Christmas before receiving a traditional toy wrapped in brown paper and string.

There are lots of opportunities to take photos, and each guest can enjoy a hot drink and mince pie whilst waiting to see Green Father Christmas.

“A magical visit to see Green Father Christmas today with my nine year old and his grandparents. Lovely, welcoming, friendly helpers and a fabulous Father Christmas dispelled any doubts about the magic of Christmas. My son said ‘it was really great, they put a lot of effort into everything about it, I’d like to visit again next year!’ – we will be back thank you!”

Customer review of 2017 event


Green Father Christmas is a busy man at this special time of year and will need to be seen by appointment – tickets must be purchased in advance of your visit.


Tickets to meet Green Father Christmas are £10 per child and include a traditional toy. All children must be accompanied by an adult (maximum two adults). Admission for accompanying adults is free as, apart from Green Father Christmas’s chamber, the Museum will be closed. You will be escorted to and from Green Father Christmas by our helpful elves!
