A day of free Christmas fun comes to Bradford Council-run Cliffe Castle Museum in Keighley on Saturday 9 December.
Even the snowmen won’t believe their little coal eyes when they see the amount of winter wonders that will be on offer at the event.
Cliffe Castle Museum and Park will be decked with Christmas decorations with fun and entertainment inside and out for all to enjoy.
There will be a Christmas market in the park which will be surrounded by a flurry of snow. Steeton Brass Band and Hurricane Blue Band will be getting everyone in the festive mood with seasonal music.
Inside the museum people will be able to try their hand at Christmassy crafts and have a go at a special Christmas trail.
On the Christmas trail visitors can use their detective skills to help find where the Butterfields’ Christmas presents have been hidden. Follow the clues and collect letters to discover the answer. Along the trail people can discover more about Christmas and New Year traditions and superstitions from around the world. The Christmas trail will be available during the normal opening hours until the new year.
A new mascot for the museum will be unveiled at the event. The new mascot, Bracewell the Dragon will explore the museum and park along with other special guests including Frozen’s Elsa and two Ice Queen stilt walkers.
Father Christmas will be in the magical setting of Cliffe Castle’s Grand Drawing room and his real reindeer will be at the museum between 11.30am to 1pm and 2pm to 3.30pm.
There will be a charge of £4 per child to receive a special present from Father Christmas and people will be able to take their own photographs.
