VISITORS to Wraxall’s Tyntesfield estate will be getting in the festive mood when weekend events are put on in the lead-up to Christmas.

Throughout December, the National Trust site will host seasonal concerts and offer food treats, creative Christmas crafts and the chance to meet Father Christmas.

While the Victorian mansion will be closed, visitors can still enjoy a range of new estate walks, take part in a hunt for Father Christmas and his cosy grotto, sample tasty treats in a new festive tipi, pick up locally-sourced Christmas trees and enjoy live music from local schools and music groups.

These Father Christmas Weekends will be held every weekend until December 19 and will feature Santa and his grotto, food including burgers and hog roast rolls and Christmas crafts in the Sawmill.

Pottery painting will be held on December 11-12 and 18-19. Christmas trees can be bought on December 4-5 and 11-12.

A Christmas concert with the Barley Rye Choir will be performed from 7-8pm on December 3 and will feature a collection of wassail Christmas songs. On December 4, female choir Miscellany will perform from 3-4pm and on December 5 The Owls of Pill, an all male choir, will perform from 3-4pm.

Tickets for all three concerts, priced £10 per concert, can be booked by calling 0844 249 1895.

Tyntesfield is open 10am-3pm every Saturday and Sunday in December.
