Father Christmas’ reindeer

December is a busy time for the reindeer. The elves have them on a tough training regime through the week to make sure they’re fit enough to fly all around the world on Christmas Eve. Luckily, they use Trelissick’s stables to rest up on Saturdays 7, 14, 21 December, 11.45am to 2.45pm.
