In its fourth consecutive year, Abbey Open Day and Boutique Christmas Markets offers visitors a very special day out! There’s free admission to the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology, the Abbey Church is open to view, there will be wide variety of speciality market stalls.
This year in true Abbey Museum style, an historical theme will prevail to surprise and delight visitors. You will notice a slight Victorian theme emerging throughout the grounds which we plan to build on year by year. Expect Victorian craft activities such as paper chains and Christmas crackers! Expect Victorian games , Skittles and Coconut Shy, and don’t be surprised to see a Penny Farthing or two wheeling around the grounds.
You’ll have a chance to dance under the big May Pole which will be a great way to allieve your conscience after sampling the yummy foods and treats from the stalls. There will be opportunities to stock up on Christmas gifts from the stalls and the Museum shoppe. Car-parking is free, there will be Santa photos in the museum. Don’t miss this chance to take a look at the amazing artefacts in the Museum and to view the inside of the Abbey Church.
