An audience with Father Christmas

Father Christmas surrounded by festive decorations in the stables at Trelissick, Cornwall

Father Christmas will be returning to Trelissick for more festive tales this December. Join him in the stables for an exciting performance and a small gift for each child at the end.

Father Christmas is fully booked for 2019

We are sorry to cause any disappointment, however Father Christmas's sessions are fully booked. Due to this popularity we are putting on shows after Christmas which involve a different story from Father Christmas's elves. See below for more details and to book.

Storytelling in the stables

Join us between Christmas and New Year as Father Christmas takes a well earned rest while two of his elves will be at Trelissick telling their story of the 12 days of Christmas. Can you help them remember the song?

Once the festive tales are over there is so much more to experience at Trelissick. The house comes alive with red and gold and from dusk the garden becomes an illuminated wonderland.
