Can you believe it’s only two weeks until Christmas?! Where did all that time go? Here’s another weeks worth of great events to keep you busy… in-between all the Christmas shopping and mince pie scoffing of course.
It’s eggnog time!
Others might look forward to Santa and Christmas stockings… but we’re more excited about our one chance in the year to down eggnog with abandon! Hullett House Christmas Market will be selling all of our favourite festive delights, including sausages, Christmas cake, stollen, mulled wine and eggnog, of course. There will also be Christmas carols to get you in the Yuletide mood and other seasonal cards, ornaments and gifts on sale too. Is it too much to hope for actual snow?

It’s hip, it’s happening… and there’s a free flow of vodka mixers from 11pm ‘til 12am too. Need we say more?!

The course of true love never did run smooth…
We can never resist a bit of The Bard and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, with its blend of romance, comedy and magic, is no exception!
