A Quarry Bank Christmas
Create family memories this Christmas at Quarry Bank on 3 - 4 and 10 - 11 December. Enjoy dressing up, a Christmas trail, storytelling, and a visit to Father Christmas.
Get dressed up in traditional costume and take a snap of you and your family dressed to impress. Follow our fun Christmas story trail around the mill, and find all the sparkles, glitter and stars you need to make a beautiful Christmas tree craft.
Head over to the Apprentice House to find out what Christmas was like at home for the apprentice children. Here you can find out about the annual school prize giving and try a slice of the currant loaf given to apprentices as a treat on Christmas Day?
Caught a winter sniffle? Then pop into the Apprentice House kitchen where the doctor is in and ready to tell you all about the remedies used throughout the festive season.
The mill yard presents a festive scene with decorations including wreaths, lights and of course the Christmas tree. Outside, brass bands perform your favourite carols, all whilst enjoying a warm mince pie and delicious hot drink.
Bring your wish list along and visit Father Christmas; he has a present for those who have behaved well this year! The special half hour sessions include festive storytelling, toys and games, decorating a gingerbread man, and a private family visit to Father Christmas. Father Christmas visits are available to book on the day (£7 per child).
Even after all the mince pies are eaten there’s still lots to enjoy. The mill and Apprentice House are open throughout the Christmas holidays, and from Tuesday 27 to Friday 30 December there will be family craft activities every day between 11am and 3pm.
