During the festivities, visitors will be able to pick up some hand-made gifts, crafts, and books as gifts for their loved ones and there will be a variety of food stalls available to enjoy. Bread and cakes made with wholemeal flour from the mill will also be available, and families will have a chance to make Christingle and traditional Christmas decorations. 

Visitors are also invited to join in with some carol singing and get into the festive spirit with some seasonal cakes and mulled wine from the café and visit the impressive original watermill and museum exhibitions.

There will be entertainment and treats to suit everyone, and most importantly, it gives us the chance to come together with families and friends to celebrate the festive period. We look forward to seeing everyone on the day for some good old-fashioned Christmas cheer."
