8 ways to start getting Christmassy on Wirral


The Christmas countdown is on! We’ve got December all wrapped up with events, activities and seasonal stop-offs for the whole family on Wirral

The Santa Experience – Church Farm, Thurstaston (Weekends 30 Nov – 22 Dec)

Meet Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph, and of course, the main man himself, at this little chestnut of an event for younger children. There’ll be sing-a-long songs and dancing with the elves in pretty Church Farm forest, plus mulled wine and mince pies for grown ups. 

While you’re there, Church Farm is home to freshly-chopped Christmas trees waiting to light up your home for the holidays. So, the kids are happy, the tree’s your own, and look at you, merrily multitasking this Christmas.

Sunday lunches with Santa – Inglewood Manor (Sun 1, 8 &15 Dec)

Visit Santa in this Edwardian winter wonderland, before sitting down to a sumptuous 3-course menu, just as the children start asking awkward questions about if that’s really him?

Lunch is what Sundays were made for, and along with a free gift and gingerbread decorating, it’s a magical treat not to be missed, served from 12-2.30pm

Festive wreath-making workshop – Concept Corner, New Brighton (Thurs 5 Dec)

Fancy something seasonal that’s a little bit different? How about signing up for some festive floristry? This 2-hour evening tutorial from Hare and Hatter Flowers helps you create a beautifully bespoke Christmas wreath.

A cute way to spend a winter’s evening, and an even cuter way to decorate your front door. Spruce up your holiday spirit with fresh foliage, mince pies, and mulled wine.

Shopping with Tasters & Testers – The Barn, Heswall (Fri 6 Dec)

Brunch with Santa – Leverhulme Hotel, Bebington (Sun 15 Dec)
