Christmas Family Fun Weekend

Details

Count down to the big day and get in the festive spirit at Tullie House! We have a mixture of fun and activities for all the family - meet Santa in his woodland Grotto, listen to warming winter tales with our storyteller, have your face painted and get crafty.

There will be plenty for little ones to do too in our Christmas themed messy play area which will have snow cloud dough and candy cane slime to experiment with! We will also have a fantastic performance from the remarkable Lempen Puppet Theatre with their show “The Amazing Thing”, a fantastic mix up of Grimm fairy tales to delight the entire family.
