Chapel Gallery December events

With extra seasonal shopping and fun activities for all the family to enjoy, the Chapel Gallery is a great place to celebrate the festive season.

On Saturday 7 December families can attend a free workshop in which people can craft Yuletide greetings cards. Then on Saturday 14 December people can make twinkly star decorations, which can be placed atop your tree to brighten up those dark wintry days.

If Christmas craftwork is to your persuasion, then visitors can design and make more Christmas decorations with artist Jane Coyle on Monday 16 December.  

Visitors can shop, dine and enjoy a complimentary glass of bubbles when the Gallery is open late on Thursday 12 December. Francesca Georgeson will be singing your Christmas favourites so come along and enjoy the winter wonderland.

Pre-school children can take part in creating a variety of superb sounds at A Wonderland Orchestra on Wednesday 18 December. Sessions are an hour long and take place throughout the day, but be sure to book this free family event in advance to avoid disappointment.

A Magical Story Telling Event, in which short stories will be read for the entertainment of children of all ages, will take place on Friday 20 December. Drop in sessions are between 10am-midday and 1pm-3pm, contact the Gallery for further information.

Councillor David Sudworth, portfolio holder for Leisure, said: “If you’re looking to get into the Christmas spirit and enjoy lots of free festive activities, then drop in at Chapel Gallery this December. Don’t miss out, there’s lots of fun to be had for all the family.”

The Gallery will be open for extra shopping days every Monday until 16 December, providing a fantastic opportunity to find unique gift ideas during the countdown to Christmas.
