Festive fun: Things to do in Devon and Cornwall

December 3, 2018

With December now upon us, we wanted to share some of our favourite festive happenings across our regions. We know December is often packed with shopping trips and Christmas parties but make sure you take some time to get into the festive spirit at these fantastic events.

We’ve collated a handy guide to some of the best events taking place in Devon and Cornwall this month.

Exeter Christmas Market: 15 Nov – 16 Dec
Explore locally made crafts, gifts, food, produce and drink and an eclectic mix of independent traders. Local choirs and musicians will add to the festive atmosphere, entertaining shoppers from the bandstand.

Humbug! St Nicholas Priory Exeter: 12-24 December
Join Ebenezer Scrooge on this immersive journey through Exeter’s oldest building. Video projections and live music will make for an atmospheric recreation of Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas ghost story.

Crealy Christmas, Spectacular: 1-23 December
Indoor and outdoor family fun and activities including Christmas on Ice, magic toy shop, singing snowmen and much, much more.

Healeys Cyder Farm Christmas Market: Every weekend 23 November – 23 December
Against a backdrop of twinkling Christmas lights, you can browse and buy gifts and decorations made by local crafters and artists. Sample food and drink before you buy, join in with carol singing and make your own Christmas decorations.

Winter Festival, Eden Project: Various dates in November & December
Take to the ice at Cornwall’s only indoor ice-skating rink, meet Santa Claus, make your own Christmas wreath and then after dark explore the immersive shadow and light sculptures.

Victorian Christmas at Lanhydrock: Every day in December except 25 & 26
Experience Christmas as the Victorian’s would have, help prepare the lavish family feast and see how they decorated their homes for the festive season. Warm yourself by the roaring fire and hear about the traditions and guests for a family living in a grand house.

Aladdin, Miracle Theatre, Falmouth: 7 Dec – 5 Jan
Aladdin in Falmouth? Oh no, he isn’t. Oh yes, he is. Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a pantomime and this production promises fun for all the family.
