Christmas 2016 at Souter

Father Christmas

Enchantment is in the air at Souter Lighthouse throughout the festive season. You can do all of your Christmas shopping under one roof and even meet Father Christmas.

Christmas Craft Fair

Our ever popular Christmas Craft Fair takes place on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 November. An altogether more relaxed way of shopping while avoiding the hassle of the High Street.

Browse hand-made crafts, gifts, cards, jewellery and much more. When it’s time to take a break from shopping, indulge in seasonal treats in the Lighthouse Café.

If you’d like to know more, please call 0191 5290909 or email


Get Crafty - Christmas Jumpers

Children can let their imagination run wild, designing and decorating a jumper for Christmas. Will it be as bright as Rudolph's nose? Create the perfect pullover to dress for Christmas dinner, or a unique gift for someone special. Suitable for ages 3 and up. £3 per jumper.

Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 November. Please call 0191 5290909 to book a 45 minute slot between 11am and 4pm.


Father Christmas comes to Souter

Enjoy a magical festive experience at Souter every December weekend before Christmas. When you arrive you will be able to post your letter to Father Christmas to tell him all your Christmas wishes.

On a short walk meet Mrs Christmas who wants to tell you a very special story. Find Father Christmas's hut hidden away in a quiet corner of the wildlife garden and spend some time chatting with the big man himself.

Then it's off to create some woodland crafts and warm up with hot chocolate and marshmallows.

This event is suitable for children up to age 10. £10 per child. Part of the event will be outside so we’d recommend dressing in warm clothes. Please book your place by calling 0191 5290909. Tickets are allocated in 1 and a half hour time slots.
