A very Traditional Christmas

Add a little Forest magic to your celebrations
14th December 2019 - 22nd December 2019


A very Traditional Christmas at the Dean Heritage Centre - 14th & 15th and 21st & 22ndDecember

This year add a little Forest magic to your celebrations and join us to enjoy a variety of Christmas activities in our beautiful Forest setting.

For two weekends in December Father Christmas will be taking time out to spend some time in our cosy Forester’s Cottage. You will find him in the homely kitchen keeping warm by the range fire and of course he will have gifts for all the children who visit him. It will be an ideal opportunity to make sure all letters and requests for Christmas presents are given to the great man himself before Christmas Eve.

While you are here take time to enjoy a festive treat in Creates Gallery and Coffee shop or browse our range of great products in the gift shop. It is an ideal opportunity to shop for a Christmas gift that is a little different. We stock unique, locally produced, quality items, a range of local gifts and books and there are plenty of toys and collectables to appeal to our younger visitors which make perfect stocking fillers.
