Winter Ideas

Cinderella.jpgshopping.jpgWinter is a great season for wrapping up warm and getting out and about. Whether it’s a stroll through the crisp countryside, festive markets, meeting Santa, Christmas Lights Switch On event, or traditional pantomime, there’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained.

It’s also a great time for exploring Tamworth’s rich heritage or why not find a local Santa events or Tudor Banquet at Tamworth’s award winning castle. New for this December is Tamworth Food Gusto Christmas Fair, where you can tantalise the taste buds with gourmet produce from around the region and pick up some festive treats.

As well as Tamworth’s own 14 nature reserves, the town is bordered by a number of parks which hold their own winter, half term and Christmas events which are brilliant for families. These include Kingsbury Water Park, Pooley church-in-snow.jpgCountry Park and Heritage Centre, Rosliston Forestry Centre and Conkers Discovery Centre.

If want a traditional Victorian Santa Trail, look no further than Tamworth Castle where you can explore the mysteries surrounding some of the ancient building’s and also interact with the Victorian characters, preparing the castle for Santa’s arrival. (Pre-booking for this event is essential).

The town will be lit up at the end of November when the main Tamworth Borough Council’s yuletide festivities are launched with a special Christmas Lights Switch On event, which marks the start of the final countdown to Christmas with a day of fun for all the family. Festive markets, Christmas tree festival, activities and entertainment will be on offer throughout the big day.

Tamworth Borough Council’s winter season of Arts & Events offers a variety of entertainment to suit all tastes, from concerts to theatre productions. This year’s line-up includes Tamworth Voices Christmas Show, Amington Band in Concert and not forgetting Tamworth Pantomime Company with their entertaining festive fun, a family must-see for Christmas.
