Gold Creek Christmas Activities

Cockington Green - November 12, 2018

It’s popular, it’s fun and better still, money will be raised to help others! The annual Gold Creek Village Christmas Festival is back with night openings of Cockington Green Gardens and the National Dinosaur Museum as well as evening pre-Christmas trading by Gold Creek retail outlets with additional entertainment throughout the day. 

Cockington Green Gardens will be opened between 7.30pm and 9.30pm on Friday, 30th November and Saturday, 1st December. The National Dinosaur Museum is also opening at night on November 30 and December 1 between 6.00pm and 9.00pm while Gold Creek Traders will have extended opening Saturday, 1st December between 10.00am and 7.00pm.  
The world we know at Cockington Green Gardens by day is totally transformed at night under lights. This is a magical treat not be missed and is especially designed for families looking for something a little different to do and enjoy with each other. There will be gold coin donation train rides, a Santa’s Hat competition and the jolly man himself will no doubt make an appearance to entertain the little ones. 
Food and beverages will be available from the café and then there’s the lovely grounds where families can bring picnics and do their own thing on a warm, balmy summer evening. All this whilst waiting for the lights turn the display into something quite special and spectacular straight from a fairy-tale setting. 
The beneficiaries of monies raised by Cockington Green Gardens during the Gold Creek Christmas Festival will be Children’s Medical Research Institute with all children accompanied by an adult for the night openings admitted free. 
The wonderful Jurassic world at the National Dinosaur Museum will not only be lit up but will light up the faces of young children who will also be admitted free-of-charge to celebrate the Gold Creek Christmas Festival. One of the new exhibits is their 20 metre T-Rex who would have given Santa lots of extra power to make his rounds on Christmas Eve. 
Pre-Christmas is synonymous with shopping and purchasing that special gift in the lead up to Christmas will be made a little easier by the choice on offer at any number of the Gold Creek retail outlets. So why not come out and make a full day of it with the night openings, entertainment and shopping on offer during the annual Gold Creek Christmas Festival.
