Christmas at Nymans

This year our festive programme of activities has been inspired by the story of The Snowman™ and The Snowdog whose characters were created by Sussex author Raymond Briggs. Activities begin with the opening of the exhibition on Saturday 17 November followed by our children's trails, drop-in crafts and giant Snowdogs in the garden from 1 December until Wednesday 2 January.
