Not in the Christmas mood yet?
Situated near Newmarket, Anglesey Abbey has a range of festive-themed events happening this December, which are sure to delight and inspire the whole family.
A Lantern-lit Christmas at Anglesey Abbey
On December 3rd 2011, enjoy a Lantern-lit Christmas at Anglesey Abbey, with a range of festive craft workshops taking place between 2pm and 4pm. Costing nothing (normal admission to the Abbey apply; National Trust members free), why not bring the whole family along for an afternoon of Christmassy activities? You can opt to make your own paper lantern or a snowman tree using Alpaca wool.
Of course, we would recommend that you come dressed ready for messy craft activities, although Anglesey Abbey will provide aprons for the kids.
Anglesey Abbey will also be open a little later than usual on December 3rd, with plenty of time to browse the National Trust shop’s gifts and enjoy a mince pie and glass of mulled wine. At 5pm, the Winter Garden will come alive with music, twinkling lights and festive spirit.
Local florist, Rebecca Law will show you how to make a stunning Christmas table centrepiece using foliage from your own garden, which is sure to delight your guests!
The Festive Floristry session costs £20 per person, with all materials and tea and coffee included in the price.
12th December 2011 from 2pm; tickets cost £20 or £15 if also booking with the Abbey’s Winter Plants study morning.
Please call Anglesey Abbey on 01223 810 080 for more information and to book.
