December is here and the countdown to Christmas is officially on and there’s no better place to be than Lancashire. From meeting Father Christmas to Christmas Markets, Christmas Wreath making to charity fun runs, there’s something for everyone this weekend. So, dig out your Christmas jumper and head to Lancashire for a fun filled festive weekend.

Christmas Saturday’s in Burnley

The Christmas spirit continues in Burnley this weekend with another jam-packed day of festive fun and entertainment. Look out for The Grinch who will be up to no good and see if you can spot Santa himself.

With Ice Fairies, a balloon artist and even a live band there is something to get everyone in the festive spirit.

Festive Preston

Winckley Square Gardens will become a festive paradise this weekend, dance around in the interactive snow globe, pose for a picture with Father Chirstmas’ sleigh and even get your face painted.

Christmas Canal Cruises

Celebrate Christmas with festive cruises on the Lancaster Canal Boats. Enjoy a relaxing and scenic cruise this festive season. A treat for children and adults alike! With onboard prizes, make sure you keep a look out for Santa who is waiting nearby…

Festive Fun on the Farm

Get ready for festive fun on the farm at Ridgeway Farm.  Father Christmas will be staying in Ridgeway Farms Fairytale Cottage every weekend from Saturday 4th December until Sunday 19th December. 

Be warned…Father Christmas isn’t coming on his own, he is bringing his little helpers with him, and they will be doing crafts in the festive shed and tours through Ridgeway’s magical winter wonderland where you can see our festive animals.

Santa at Lowlands Farm Alpacas

Let the adventure begin in the cosy alpaca barn at Lowlands Farm. You will make magical reindeer food, write a letter to santa and even meet santa himself!

Lancaster on ice 

The award winning and internationally recognised Lancaster On Ice continues this weekend at the historic Dalton Square, in the heart of Lancaster.

Returning with Christmas Market Stalls, the Giant Tipi Bar, 800m ice-rink and giant Ferris wheel, it’s certainly not one to miss this festive season.
