This Cornish Christmas event will be held at the Royal Cornwall Events Centre. Located near Wadebridge, over two consecutive long weekends in December.

The first weekend is from Thursday 9th to Sunday 12th of December. The second weekend is from Thursday 16th to Sunday 19th of December. Over one hundred traders will be at the event. There will also be a festive food court and plenty bars for the adults to sample a glass or two of mulled wine.

…and for the children

There will be reindeers, giant polar bears and even a life size gingerbread house to keep the them entertained. The kids can also have an audience with Santa, where he will be telling stories and might even sing the odd song! There is even a 20m synthetic ice rink on site to discover, if you want to show off your skating skills! This is available to book separately.

Opening and closing times for each day of the event vary and tickets are available to book by morning or afternoon session. This is to ease capacity and for parking access.
