Details

As Hawkshead fills with Christmas cheer during the Christmas Fair, the Beatrix Potter Gallery will be celebrating all things local as it hosts its first ‘Meet the Makers’ event. Enjoy festive punch and mince pies while meeting local suppliers and seeing demonstrations. From kitchenware to body care, treat yourself or someone else to locally sourced and produced goods, while supporting smaller local businesses. You can even visit Father Christmas himself in the festive grotto while you’re there.
