A Fact Finding Trail and Santa at the National Waterways Museum. Glos
An earthquake, a famous carol and a miserly Dickensian character all have a seasonal connection to the county of Gloucestershire. They are just some of the fascinating facts decorating the baubles on the Christmas trees at the National Waterways Museum, Gloucester (run by the Canal & River Trust). From this week visitors will be able to follow the Christmas tree trail to discover intriguing Christmas connections. Some may be familiar, others may surprise!
Starting on 7 December, Santa and his friends will be taking up residence in a magical floating grotto on Sabrina 5. He’ll be telling Christmas stories for little ones and their carers in groups. The storytelling will be rounded off with a chat and a present from the man himself. The stories can be enjoyed by all ages but are most likely to be popular with 2 – 7 year olds.
The 30-minute Santa sessions will run at 11am, 1.30pm and 2.30pm on the weekends of: 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22 and 23 December.
Tickets cost £10 (1 child and up to 1 adult) and include entry to the museum on that day.
