Christmas is well on its way and Nottinghamshire is doing its very best to get into the festive spirit, with covid-safe outdoor events, including trails, fayres and markets.  If you're choosing to stay indoors, there are also plenty of online events that you can take part in.

Please check our Weekend Events Guides for updated information.

All the Best

Southwell Minster will be running a virtual Christmas Craft Fair between 1st and 21st December, where you can peruse lots of lovely gifts from the comfort of your own home. 

If you're really looking to grab hold of some Christmas spirit, you can't get much better than a visit to Light Up Christmas at Wollaton Hall.  This visually stunning, multi-sensory experience of light, fire and sound will take you on a trail of discovery through four magical lands.  Read my review here.

Festive outdoor events to check out including The Snow Scavenge Trail at Creswell Crags, which takes place every weekend throughout December and cost £3 and the Storybook Trail at Newstead Abbey, which costs £5.  Both of these offer a great opportunity to wrap up warm and get the family out and about.

Despite Covid restrictions, there are a few Markets and Fayres taking place at venues throughout Nottinghamshire, including Floralands Farm Park, The Garage in Chilwell and Rufford Abbey.

Our favourite free range White Post Farm is offering lots of family-friendly fun as usual this December, with Santa, Elves, Reindeer and all the usual beautiful animals.
