This coming Sunday is the first day of December and to mark the start of the most festive month of the year, Watford is going all out in terms of Christmassy treats and events.

For example, on Saturday is the Traditional Christmas event at the Chiltern Open Air Museum. From 10am until 4pm on Saturday 30th November, you can go along and see the historic buildings festooned in an array of beautiful, traditional festive decorations.

There will also be carol singing in the tin chapel, the chance to create your own Christmas decorations and treats, and the opportunity to sample festive fayre at the Museum in Chalfont St Giles near Watford.

Please note that special admission charges apply.
