Waterfront Christmas Celebrations

Starts: Saturday 19th November 2016
Ends: Sunday 20th November 2016
From: 12:00 pm

Christmas is such a magical time of year and what better way to spend it than by visiting one of the many fabulous events that the city of Plymouth has to offer. This weekend (19th and 20th November), head down to The Barbican where there will be a snow machine, a selection of entertainment including local choirs and a brass band and even real reindeer! There will be interactive tours, where you can follow Scrooge down the cobbled streets of The Barbican to uncover the truth about his Christmas past, present and future. This is set to be a fantastic local event in a treasured historic area of the city. The Barbican and Sutton Harbour are home to a range of independent shops and art galleries as well as restaurants and cafes, so why not attend this wonderful family event, whilst supporting local trade at the same time!
