On Saturday 10th December, Father Christmas will be visiting Kilver Court’s annual Christmas Fair. Father Christmas will be in his very special grotto in the gardens with his reindeer Rudolf, ready to meet and greet children and give each child a special Christmas gift. The cost will be £8 per child and free entry to the gardens for accompanying adults.


Held in Kilver Court’s Jardines Ballroom the Christmas Fair will host some of the South West’s finest creators, makers, growers and producers who will be offering a vast selection of seasonal goodies. On offer will be everything from crafted willow products to hand made jewellery and some of the best produce from Somerset and beyond.

Freddie Saul, Kilver Court’s CEO comments, “We are delighted that Father Christmas is back with us again this year, bringing his band of merry helpers and Rudolf to make our Christmas Fair very special. He was so popular with the children last year as was the reindeer – on a personal note it made my grandmother’s Christmas – she couldn’t believe she stroked a real reindeer at 91! We look forward to welcoming young and old again this year.”

The Christmas Food Festival will run from 10am until 3pm and the whole of Kilver Court will be open as usual throughout the day, giving visitors the chance to visit The Christmas Room in the Great House, shop over 50 designer brands and find the perfect last minute gift. The Midsomer Norton and Radstock Silver Brass Band Academy will provide the musical accompaniment to the day by playing a songbook of traditional carols to get everyone into the Christmas spirit.
