Father Christmas Shrewsbury

About this event

Visit Father Christmas at Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery 1st–23rd December 2023

The festive magic is on its way to Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery this December, where Father Christmas will be visiting Shrewsbury to meet families in his traditional museum workshop.

The elves will meet you and your family, guide you along the flagstones, through the archway to begin your climb up the original sweeping staircase. Children are welcome to post a letter to Father Christmas – look out for our post box on your journey.

A cheerful Elf guide will lead you through to a wonderous workshop, crammed full of history and magic, to meet Father Christmas himself! Tell him your Christmas dreams and wishes and receive an early gift.

Keep the magic alive as you follow the Christmas museum trail, exploring our fascinating galleries and try your hand at some of the free Christmas craft activities. You can browse the thoughtful and indulgent gifts, books, and pocket-money treats in our museum gift shop.

Maximum 6 people per time slot. Various time-slots available.
