If you’re looking for a traditional Welsh Christmas to remember, why not grab a torch, wrap up warm and follow the star to St Fagans this year!

There’ll be unmissable performances of Wales' unique Christmas traditions: the Mari Lwyd and The Hunting of the Wren. You’ll find logs on the fire, carols in the chapel, traditional Welsh Plygain singing in the church and a brass band on Gwalia Green. 

For the little ones there’ll be a chance to meet Father Christmas. You can write your Christmas list at the Victorian Schoolhouse then pop it in the box at our post office. Stop for a chat with the postmaster while you’re there.  Ride the Christmas land train down to the Llwyn Yr Eos Farm to meet Mother Christmas in her kitchen. Be sure to check the stables while you’re there because we’ve invited some special four legged guests.

Get creative at our craft workshops, there’s wreath making for grown-ups as well as family friendly gingerbread decorating and more. Make a start on your Christmas shopping at our festive food and craft markets – a chance to pick up gifts and treats you won’t find on the High Street.

Then as the evening draws to a close we’ll gather together in the Atrium for some carols to gladden your heart - there’s no better way to kick off the Festive Season than the St Fagans Christmas Nights!
