Meet Father Christmas in his Traditional Museum Workshop

Visit Father Christmas from Wednesday 23rd November to Friday 23rd December 2022
The festive magic is beginning at Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery, where visitors are invited to meet Father Christmas in his traditional museum workshop. The elves have been busily preparing to meet you and your family.

Follow the flagstones, through the tree-lined shut, and enchanted stone archway and begin your climb up the original sweeping staircase. Children are welcome to post a letter to Father Christmas – look out for our cosy post office on your journey.

A cheerful Elf guide will lead you through to a wonderous workshop, crammed full of history and magic, to meet Father Christmas himself! Tell him your Christmas dreams and wishes and receive an early gift.

Keep the magic alive as you follow the Christmas trail, exploring our fascinating galleries and try your hand at some of the free festive craft activities dotted around the museum. A delicious mug of hot chocolate, or a mulled wine and mince pie at the Stop Café, will complete your Traditional Christmas treat. And don’t forget to browse the traditional and indulgent gifts, books, and pocket-money treats in our museum gift shop.

Please book your preferred time slot for your visit, where you will meet our friendly elves at the grotto entrance at your allocated time and they will lead you to Father Christmas in his museum workshop as he prepares for his special sleigh ride on Christmas Eve!
