A Cornish Christmas

We love Cornwall whatever time of year it is, but Christmas
in Cornwall is extra special. With Christmas food
festivals, markets, sing-a-longs, festive gigs, Christmas lights and of course
Santa and his reindeer, there is lots to see and do over the festive season.

So get out and about to some of our favourite places and say
“Nadelik Lowen Ha Bledhen Nowytha Da” and wish people a Merry Christmas and
Happy New Year in Cornish!

Christmas
at Eden
is an absolute blast and we LOVE IT!

There is so much happening it is certainly more than a fun
filled day out for you and the kids. Explore the Enchanted Rainforest before
meeting Santa and his reindeer and hitting the ice at the much loved ice rink.

They’ll be storytelling, Christmas craft workshops and carol
singers throughout December. Along with a scrumptious festive menu, perfect to
warm the cockles on a chilly winters day!

There is nothing better than a good old fashioned Christmas
Pantomime and this year Truro’s Hall for Cornwall brings
you the fabulous Dick
Whittington and his Mousehole Cat

image

This tale of a young man who sets off to Cornwall to follow
his dreams with nothing but his faithful cat is set to be a great adventure
filled with hilarious
audience interaction and surprises! Starring Harry Potter actor Granville Saxton and Cornwall’s much loved Kernow King you can certainly
expect to laugh your socks off with this action packed event the whole family will
enjoy.

The
pantomime runs until the 3rd January 2016 with tickets
available from £14.00

One
thing not to miss this December is the Mousehole Christmas Lights

image

The
official switch on is the 12th of December at 7pm and is certainly
an event not to be missed. With the spectacular scene of lights floating in the
harbour, accompanied by carol singing the walls are adorned and
the village is jam-packed with bright and colourful lights. The smell of mulled wine and festive food fills
the air as a local band performs.

To catch this exquisite display of community and festive fun
you will need to be prepared to be patient. Mousehole is a typically small and
idyllic harbour village with smaller roads and restricted parking, so getting
to and from the harbour can take some time.

The Cathedral City of Truro is just a short drive from both
our Carnebo
Barns
, near Newquay and Tresooth
Barns
, near Falmouth comes alive every Wednesday evening for its annual Christmas
late night shopping and this year the city will be filled with festive street
entertainment on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Explore the delights of the Christmas street markets with
fantastic food and Christmas goodies.

And this year for the first time EVER Truro can guarantee it’s
going to snow! On the 23rd December, Boscawen Street will be
transformed into an amazing Winter Wonderland, with falling snow, a special
dedicated snowball throwing area, visits from Disney’s Frozen characters,
Christmas carols, brass bands and so much more!
