The Culture Trust in Luton have some wicked looking stuff on for the festive period including some super Christmassy carols and choirs, Father Christmas sessions and theatre performances and Stockwood Discovery Centre will be illuminated which looks like it will be lovely!!
Here’s their full line up.
From 6th – 29th December
£4-£5.50 Per person
I’m really excited about this, it looks so lovely considering how nice the gardens at Stockwood are!
This 30 minute self led walk is running on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights and leads you through the winding luminated pathways set against a backdrop of the beautiful gardens. After you have enjoyed the walk you can enjoy a number of other festive activities and tasty treats onsite. Although they run in the dark there are some child friendly times so you can take the little ones out and get them in the festive mood.
Father Christmas visits Wardown House
From 1st – 22nd December
£13 per child and from £3 per adult
Ive been to see Father Christmas at Wardown House before and it was a lovely Father Christmas, very gentle and kind to my then 2 year old who was very nervous. Obviously it may be a different Father Christmas but he really set the standard in my eyes. The session runs for about 40 mins and is a real experience with milk and cookies with elves, a story with Mother Christmas and a gift from the big man himself!
Santa’s Marvellous Magical Toyshop Theatre Production
14th – 23rd December
A Christmassy performance that includes puppets and is suitable for children age 3+. It lasts 90 minutes (with 20 minute interval) and provides funny and festive entertainment for the whole family.
In the Luton Libraries there is also a magical elf trail running at the moment. Find hidden letters and unscramble them to earn a sticker.
BIG Gospel Choir: A Gospel Celebration at Luton Library Tbeatre
4th December – 7:30pm
£12 or £10 concessions
An uplifting and talented gospel choir made up of outstanding vocalists from the Luton community singing a selection of Christmas songs and other songs to warm your heart.
A Christmas Carol Theatre Production
6th – 21st December – 7:30 PM
£15 or £12 concessions
This one is for older children with an age guidance of 12+ years. We all know the story but this one will be in the intimate setting of Wardown house and your ticket price includes a hot drink and a mince pie! Be aware that younger children may find the performance distressing.
