Activities to shed a little fun into Christmas

As we know, December is shaping up to be a little bit different this year, with many of our favourite festive events cancelled.

However, West Suffolk council have laid on some activities that could help to inject a little fun into the pre-Christmas period.

At Moyse’s Hall Museum, Father Christmas will be in his traditional Grotto on Sunday, December 20. Little one’s can tell him their Christmas wishes, before he heads off for his busiest day of the year. Each family group/bubble will be given a 10-minute time slot (there will be a thorough cleaning between each visit)

Also at Moyse’s Hall, The 12th Annual Sci-Fi and Action Exhibition, The Museum Strikes Back will continue until January 20. This intergalactic exhibition for all ages features props, artwork, studio replicas and a real live (not live) Gremlin!

Tasmin Little (pictured above) has firmly established herself as one of today’s leading international violinists, in fact The Independent declared, “Little can justly be regarded as Britain’s finest violinist.”

Having recently announced that she would be retiring from concert performance, the last chance to see and hear Tasmin playing live will be at The Apex on Tuesday, December 22, at 3pm and 7.30pm.

Playing Sonatas by Mozart and Franck, she will be accompanied by Martin Roscoe.

The reduced capacity and socially distanced seating will ensure your safety and remain within government guidelines.

If you’d like to get crafty, Booze and Brushes at The Apex are offering a fun painting session on Monday, December 7, and a Standing Christmas Tree painting workshop on Thursday and Monday, December 17 and 21. Suitable for everyone, you will be guided step-by-step throughout, and at the end of the night you can take home your very own masterpiece!

Take a look at for more information about these and many other December events, including a wonderful outdoor production of “A Christmas Carol”, courtesy of the Theatre Royal, Ghostly Walks, a Winter Wander, Children’s Workshops and even a “Back To The 80s” Roller Disco.
