'Christmas in the Cloisters' - Saturday
4 December (4.30 - 6.30pm):
Welcome to our totally unique and magical
celebration of Christmas in the candle-lit surroundings of the
Joy Mead Cloisters. The fresh air always circulating through the
open Cloisters will be a major asset this year - just dress up
With the brazier to keep us warm as well, there will be mulled
wine, mince pies and barbecued sausages, colourful stalls to entice
you, carol singing round the Christmas tree and games to play
- and of course Father Christmas has promised that he will pay
us a visit.
Bring along family and friends for a lovely start to the festivities!
