The Eden Project’s Christmas fair is known for being the biggest Christmas Fair in Cornwall, with 70 local and international stalls, you’ll never run out of things to do. This makes it the perfect time for Christmas shopping and a great day out for the whole family to get into the Christmas spirit. Tickets include lunch, wine, and free admission for the 23rd and 24th of November. Proceeds from the sales will go towards Cornwall Community Foundation, helping the local community through the winter and beyond.

Irving Berlin’s classic musical is coming to Cornwall this winter, making it a great family-friendly experience. This heartwarming romantic comedy features classic Christmas songs like Blue Skies and, of course, White Christmas. This musical is visually impaired and deaf-friendly, with some performances having a sign language interpreter and a real-time description of the performance through headphones so nobody can miss out on the festive cheer. The musical is running from the 12th to the 19th of November.
