“Celebrating the joy of Christmas”
This year Norwood Park will hold its second annual Christmas Experience. Last year we ran it over one day - Sunday 4th December from 10am - 4pm and welcomed crowds exceeding 3,000 guests. To take advantage of crowd volumes we are extending the event to include the evening of Friday 1st December, 10am - 4pm on Saturday 2nd December and 10am - 4pm on Sunday 3rd December.
We are looking for a host of stalls with products that celebrate Christmas or are great gifts for loved ones (or both!). If you are looking for a medium sized Christmas event filled with authentic activities geared towards families and shoppers - then this might be the right event for you.
Below is an outline of what we offer at the event to give you a feel for what we are looking to achieve:
Experience the spirit of a traditional Southwell Christmas at beautiful Norwood Park this year.
A magical encounter awaits you as we have transformed the House and Gallery especially for Christmas and festively dressed the sumptuous rooms and roaring log fires, with fresh wreaths garlands and towering, decorated trees.
Take a tour of the gorgeous ground floor of the house and later the Gallery - hear the festive songs of the season with our Choirs, Carollers, and Soloists. Delight in our jovial entertainers with Christmas themed traditional Punch and Judy shows and 48 Key Pell Fairground Organ performances featuring wonderful traditional Christmas music throughout the afternoon.
Step back in time with our range of festive activities for children including a Gingerbread Man Decorating Workshop, Christmas Bauble Hunt through the woods and gardens, Face Painting, Pony Rides, Snowball Penalty Shoot-out, Christmas Decoration Workshop and much, much more.
Enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of the season in stunning surrounds and find unique and inspiring gifts for friends and family. Get a head start on your Christmas shopping with our range of locally crafted gifts including mouth-watering hampers, hand-made children’s clothing, glass baubles, cashmere wraps, delightful interior ideas, and toys.
Immerse yourself in all things Christmas in our dedicated food area selling a wide range of delicacies and tipples to suit all tastes including savoury Christmas pastries, cocktails, beers, wines, snow-flecked brownies and creamy hot chocolate. Take a seat in the snowy courtyard and enjoy the smell of roasting chestnuts while you indulge your appetite.
Meet the jolly man himself, Father Christmas and enjoy yuletide stories before receiving a special Christmas gift.
Finally, wrap up warm, pack your camera, and enjoy an enchanting Christmas experience for friends and family at Norwood Park this year.
