Visit Father Christmas at Ulster Folk Museum


This event is now sold out. 

In the quiet town of Ballycultra a jolly fellow with twinkling eyes, rosy cheeks and a snow white beard has been spotted toasting his toes by the fire.

This is your chance to come and say hello before he packs up his sleigh and sets off on his yearly Christmas voyage. During your Father Christmas visit you'll be able to send off your letter from our Post Office, and if you've made it on to his nice list you might get something special to take home...

Once you've said goodbye, wander round Ballycultra and soak up the Christmas magic with ivy wreaths adorning the doors, festive music, scents of cinnamon and seasonal fayre. Look out for our talented craft demonstrators and have a go at making your own Christmas decorations!
