Padstow Christmas Festival
Start your festive season with a day out during its 6th annual Christmas Festival from Thursday 5th – Sunday 8th December 2013.
It’s during December that Padstow is at its most magical. Promising an array of seasonal treats including Christmas lights and decorations, Santa’s grotto, fireworks, seasonal food, festive demonstrations and late night shopping, visitors will be spoilt for choice.
A traditional Christmas market will be situated in a large marquee on the quay side of the idyllic seaside town, where stalls will be laden with Cornish goodies and gifts. Visitors can also explore Padstow’s boutique retailers for artisan jewellery, crafts, fashion and home wares. With entertainment and live music to keep the kids entertained, Padstow’s Christmas Festival offers a great way to make the most of a winter’s day.
Food and drink stands will be celebrating all things Cornish; expect tastings, seasonal food, mulled wine and live cookery demonstrations. Sample the best of Cornwall’s produce from the town’s local suppliers or enjoy a meal in one of Padstow’s renowned restaurants, cafés and pubs – many of whom will be running special seasonal offers throughout the weekend.
With scenic estuary views, carols around the Christmas tree and live music, visitors can soak up the merry atmosphere whilst escaping the hustle and bustle of city life. The celebration will culminate with a special Christmas service and carols at the historic St Petroc’s church at 6pm on Sunday evening.
