Christmas 2023 programme - Father Christmas and Friends

Father Christmas and his Elves will be visiting St Fagans Museum once again this year, and you’re invited to a very special event in our festive setting at Llys Llywelyn, the Museum’s impressive reconstruction of a 13th century Princes Court. So make sure you book a place for your little ones to come and join the fun.

Each child will: 

  • Meet Father Christmas – he'll meet each child individually and they’ll receive a gift. There will be an opportunity to have your photograph taken with Father Christmas during this meet & greet. 
  • Participate in an interactive storytime session with Father Christmas and the Elves 
  • Get creative in a Craft workshop with the Elves – each child will make their own special decoration to take home
