Father Christmas and Friends

Father Christmas and Friends


Each weekend in December Father Christmas and his friends will be visiting St Fagans Museum. So make sure you book a place for your little ones to come and join the fun.

Choose from:
Meet Father Christmas - £7 per child. He’ll tell you a tale or two in front of the fire in Cilewent Farmhouse. Then he’ll meet each child individually and they’ll receive a gift. (Welsh sessions 11-11.30am and 12.30-1pm).

Cooking with Mother Christmas - £6 per child. She’s busy in the kitchen at Llwyn yr Eos farmhouse. The children will help her make some sweet treats to take home. (Welsh session 14:00-14:30).

Write your Christmas letter in the Victorian Schoolhouse - £5 per child. The elves are working on the big list of who’s been especially good this year. Each child will meet the elves who will help them write their special letter. Then you’ll pop round to our tiny Post Office to send it off to the North Pole. (Welsh session 11:45-12:15).

Christmas Craft with the Elves - £5 per child. It’s been chaos in the workshop this year because the elves are just too naughty! They need your help to come and make some Christmas decorations before they get in trouble. (Welsh session 10:15-10:45).

A ticket is required for each participating child. Due to the limitations of space in the historic buildings at St Fagans – we are only able to allocate space for a maximum of one adult to accompany each participating child. Non participating infants in arms do not require a ticket but all pushchairs must be left outside the historic buildings. Accompanying adults do not need to purchase a ticket for themselves.
