The Canterbury Tales Announces New Festive Events %7C Group Travel News

The Canterbury Tales visitor attraction in Kent has revealed details for two festive events with a Medieval twist this winter – an artisan gift fair and a family-friendly Christmas experience.

A Medieval Christmas

On Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th December, groups can visit the attraction for the Medieval Christmas experience.

The adventure will begin at the Tabard Inn, where groups will be able to see Santa’s elf wrapping gifts in front of the fire.

Next, they will travel through snow-filled streets themed as old London, entertained by carol singers and jolly pilgrims along the way.

This will be followed by the opportunity to dress up in elf costumes for a photo opportunity.

Groups will then have the chance to stop for some mulled cider before visiting Santa’s grotto.

The experience will also include a Christmas Stocking Trail, plus the chance to learn how to make a Medieval mince pie.

An artisan gift fair

The artisan gift fair will take place on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th November and will use sights, smells and sounds to attribute to the theme of 14th century England.

Groups will be able to browse gifts from a host of Kent artisans and crafters, for the opportunity to buy last minute Christmas gifts.

Entry into the gift fair is free.

The experience combines live interaction and audio guides to tell five different tales of true love, scheming and trickery, with the use of live characters.
