Christmas at Ilam will be full of festive magic and visitors from near and far are invited to experience the winter wonderland of Ilam Park, on Saturday, December 10, and Sunday, December 11, from 11am –4.30pm.

The courtyard and the Tea Rooms at Ilam will be transformed into a magical Christmas Market, with beautiful, sustainably-sourced Christmas Trees and some local handmade crafts for sale, as well as musical entertainment provided by Ilam School and other local musicians.

There will be children’s games and Christmas craft activities to take part in, with festive face-painting, the chance to make Christmas decorations, and a warming cup of free mulled wine (for grown ups) in the Tea Rooms.

Engagement and events officer Jenny Gerrans says: “The atmosphere at Ilam Park will be one of festive enjoyment for all the family. Ilam is a beautiful place to share time with family and friends, enjoy some fresh air and try some of our delicious home made food. It’s the first time we’ll be holding our annual Christmas Market, so with all the plotting and planning, we’re really looking forward to creating something very special for everyone.”

Christmas at Ilam runs from 11am – 4.30pm. The event is free, and is part of an annual programme of events with the National Trust in the Peak District.
