Visit Father Christmas at Tredegar House

Father Christmas puts a present under his tree

We’ve received word from the elves and Father Christmas is going to be visiting us once again this year.

Add some magic to your festive season and come and cosy up in Father Christmas’s pop up grotto as he gets ready to deliver presents to children of Newport, Cardiff and beyond.

He’ll be in the stables busy checking his naughty and nice list, wrapping all his presents and giving Dasher and Dancer and the rest of his reindeer a well-earned break to get ready for the big journey. While they’re off flying the skies, Father Christmas will be pouring over his maps to plan the best route around the local area in preparation for present delivery day.

The best news is he’s also promised to make some time to welcome the children of Newport and Cardiff while he is here.
