There will be festive fun for all ages at Candie this festive season.
Candie Christmas takes place every Sunday during December (except the 29th) at Guernsey Museum with a packed programme of seasonal things to see and do.
A unique Santa's Grotto will be set up in the gardens, decorated especially for the occasion. A charge of £5 per child applies to the Grotto and includes a small gift.
Visitors of all ages will be invited to make their own seasonal decorations and cards. Children's crafts will take place in the Discovery Room, while activities elsewhere are specifically aimed at older children and adults. For returning visitors, the crafts will vary.
Festive family films will be shown in the Frossard Theatre all day and there will be new seasonal-themed trails in the Museum too. Live music will take place in the galleries and will include Christmas carol singing in Guernésiais. Storytelling in the galleries will be provided each week by staff from Guille-Allès Library.
There is a beautiful range of gifts on sale in the Museum shop and Café Victoria will be open for hot drinks, mince pies, snacks and lunches.

'We like to think that Candie Christmas offers something different to other festive experiences. The museum galleries are a unique backdrop to some really special activities - such as printing your own cards or making Christmas tree decorations'.
Candie Christmas takes place every Sunday during December (except the 29th) at Guernsey Museum, 10.00-16.00. Normal admission applies to the Museum, so it's free for Discovery Pass holders. For more information, please visit www.museums.gov.gg/candiechristmas
