Father Christmas and Friends: At Home is a magical event full of festive fun for families to enjoy in the comfort of their own home.
Following on from the success of last year’s At Home digital Christmas event, families will be able to join Father Christmas, Mother Christmas and the mischievous elves for a feast of festive fun from home.
This year’s event takes place on Saturday 11 December 2021, from 12:15pm to 7pm and includes an extra dash of festive excitement, with a video call to meet real reindeer in a Secret Forest in Lapland.
In an afternoon packed full of Christmas sparkle, here’s what you can expect:
- Father Christmas LOVES gingerbread! Mother Christmas will be in her kitchen to teach you how to make her very special recipe.
- Find out more about some cool Welsh Christmas traditions
- Join a live video call to meet some real reindeer in a Secret Forest in Lapland
- Are you hoping for snow? Visit the elves at their workshop to make paper snowflakes and snow globes.
- Sing along to some of our festive favourite tunes with the Christmas Crew.
- Settle down for story time with Father Christmas in front of the fire.
Tickets are on sale now priced at just £5 (plus booking fee) per family. Tickets are limited and must be pre-booked. The event is aimed at children aged 3-8 years old and their families.
Ticket holders will be sent a downloadable ‘essentials’ guide in advance to help them plan their Christmas experience.
Most of the activities will be recorded in advance and although the event can be followed ‘live’ as per the suggested times, content will be available to ticket holders between 11.45am Saturday 11 December and 6pm Sunday 12 December, meaning you can enjoy the activities at your own pace.
All materials and activities* supplied for this event will be available in Welsh & English. Please select your preferred language option when buying your ticket. *Excluding the live Lapland call, which will be delivered in English.
British Sign Language translations are also available for all video content. Please ensure that you select the correct ticket at time of booking.
It follows the success of other digital family events organised by the museum, including Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales’ Sleepover at home events, which recently won the Kids in Museums ‘Best Family Friendly Digital Activity’ award.
The event has been generously supported by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery.
