Enjoy festive events and join in as we decorate Dyffryn ready for Christmas.
Discover merry scenes nestled in the gardens, build a snowman (whatever the weather), add to our ribbon garlands, enjoy family games and help us fill the garden with Christmas cheer.
Don’t forget to swing by our second-hand bookshop where lots of jolly events will be taking place throughout December and the Christmas holidays.
Do you have what it takes to be a Dyffryn elf? This year we need help getting Dyffryn ready for Christmas. Start your visit by adding to our ribbon walk, then hop into Father Christmas’ sleigh for a festive picture.
In the Cloisters and Log Stack play area you’ll find interactive Christmas scenes and games for all the family. Decorate a family of snowmen and put on a pantomime in the puppet theatre, or get competitive with a game of snowman hoopla, a “snow and spoon” race, a game of giant kerplunk or nutcracker skittles. Who will be the Christmas champion?
To warm up head to the second-hand bookshop in the Gallery to design and decorate your own felt wreaths and perhaps find some literary stocking fillers.
On Saturday 9 and Sunday 17 December we will be running children’s Christmas decoration workshops. There will be two sessions, one at 10.30am-12pm and another at 2.00pm-3.30pm in the Gallery. There’s no need to pre-book and no charge (normal admission applies).
