Christmas traditions at The Argory

The Argory staircase decorated for Christmas

Christmas wouldn't be complete without a visit to The Argory Christmas Fair.

Celebrate traditions old and new at The Argory this Christmas. With exciting and beautiful winter wonderlands to discover, Christmas fairs to enjoy, festive entertainment, mulled punch and mince pies, The Argory has it all wrapped up!

The magnificent Victorian estate will once again come to life at the annual Christmas Fair on Saturday 3 December and Sunday 4 December from 11.30am-5.30pm.

Experience what life was like for the MacGeough Bond family and their servants as they prepare for the festive period. See the house in a whole new light, dressed in traditional Victorian décor and hear how the family celebrated Christmas in the 1800’s.

This year, the Courtyard will be packed with over 40 craft, food and gift stalls, stocking locally produced and festive goods including home furnishings, cupcakes, handbags, fudge, candles, cider, crafts and more. Visitors can stock up on seasoned firewood for the cold winter months and choose from the beautiful range of Christmas trees. This year’s event will also feature a food quarter including sweet and savoury crepes, beef burgers and hot dogs, spit hog roast and speciality teas and coffees.

We’ll have a traditional carousel and face painting for the little ones. Coalisland and St. Mark’s silver bands will transport visitors to a bygone age with the sounds of fabulous festive entertainment.
