Meet Father Christmas in Ordsall’s Historic Great Hall.

We are so excited to welcome Father Christmas to Ordsall Hall this year! Children will meet Father Christmas in the beautiful surrounding of Ordsall’s Grade I listed Tudor Great Hall. During their visit they will choose a magical gift from the Elves, and have the option to take part in Christmas themed craft activities based in the Museum Galleries.

A Christmas café will also be serving hot and cold drinks, along with a selection of tasty festive treats and our Museum Shop will be open 1-4 for a bit of last minute Christmas shopping.

Let the magic of Christmas enchant you in our beautiful historic Great Hall, the perfect setting for Father Christmas’ visit.

Father Christmas will be at the Hall on:

  • Sunday 12th December, 1:00pm – 3:30pm
  • Sunday 19th December, 1:00pm – 3:30pm

£4.00 per child (includes 1 gift chosen by the child). Pre-booking is essential.

Covid-19: How we’re managing our event safely

Your safety is our number one priority and we’re keeping some of the changes we made from last year.

  • Visitors are encouraged to wear a face covering for the duration of the event. Staff and elves will be wearing face coverings when near guests.
  • We ask that you make use of our hand sanitiser on arrival.
  • Each family/booking will have their own dedicated slot to visit Father Christmas and will be asked to sit a little distance from him in the Great Hall so he can be maskless for the duration of your visit.
  • A maximum of 5 people can accompany the child visiting Father Christmas.
  • Please do not attend the event if you are feeling unwell or have tested positive for Covid-19.

Rest assured, our ethos remains strong that you and your child will walk away feeling fully restored of all the magic and spirit of Christmas! If government restrictions prevent our event from taking place, you will be offered a full refund of the ticket price. Sorry, no refunds for any other circumstances. Tickets are not transferable to other dates.
