Warm yourself by the fire, make decorations for the tree, celebrate with good food and enjoy festive storytelling from Father Christmas. Your guide to Christmas 2019 at Trerice.

Father Christmas

It wouldn’t be Christmas at Trerice without a visit from our old friend Father Christmas with his familiar white beard and, this year, robes of red. Visit him in the drawing room to hear tales and traditions of Christmas past on 7, 8, 14, 15, 21 and 22 December.

There’ll be five thirty minute performances daily, tickets are £4 for children, £3 for adults. Father Christmas is very busy during December so pre-booking is essential and please take note that normal admission charges to Trerice still apply.
