Abbey Open Day and Boutique Christmas Markets

November 19, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


Join us at our 2nd ever Open Day and Boutique Christmas Markets at the Abbey Museum!


This event was so popular last year that we had to bring it back, promising to be bigger and better than last year!

Our wonderful Open Day and Christmas Markets will be held in the lush gardens and grounds of the Abbey Museum on Saturday the 19th of November, where the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology will be opening it’s doors, free of charge, for guests to come and explore the amazing displays and artifacts!

Mini Digs will also be available for kids! At $5 a dig, your children can pretend to be archaeologists and dig up an awesome treasure to take home. Mini Digs are available for 6-12 year olds, and Toddle Digs for 5 years and under.

Our special Boutique Christmas Markets will also be available to peruse, and with the Christmas season fast approaching, if you are looking for special gifts and gadgets for your friends and families then there is no better place! There will be craft stalls available for kids to make their loved ones special end of year gifts and stalls selling handmade gifts, fashion accessories, arts and crafts, books, home-wares and so much more!

There will also be a delightful Devonshire Tea Stall, Sausage Sizzle, a Jumping Castle for the kids, Archery and other wonderful entertainment!

Even Santa will be there with a photography team ready to take the Christmas family photos for the year!

HelTime: 10am til 2pm on 19th November
