Penrhyn Castle is embracing a more traditional Christmas celebration this festive season. You can join in a number of creative Victorian workshops every weekend in the lead up to the big day, helping you get into the festive spirit.
Surprise your friends and family by making some beautifully handmade Christmas cards in a traditional Victorian style. You can also make a delicately handcrafted festive wreath to hang on your front door- your decorations will be the talk of the town! An additional cost of £6/ wreath applies and sessions have to be booked online. There will also be a number of food demonstrations held in the Castle’s kitchen, where you can learn about traditional Victorian cooking methods whilst sipping on a delicious glass of warming Christmas punch. All of these workshops will take place between 11:00 and 16:00, every Saturday and Sunday from December 1st-16th.
Penrhyn Castle have also teamed up with the Trussell Trust this year to help donate to Caernarfon Foodbank and help the local community. You can help share a little Christmas cheer this festive season by dropping off your donations to the Visitor’s Centre anytime during normal opening hours.
