Advent @ The FEZ

Christmas-Themed Weekends For All The Family

That magical time of year is here again. Christmas circus, Christmas workshops, Christmas carols, Christmas theatre productions, Christmas films at fezino, interactive exhibitions at the Alice Museum For Children and amazing astronaut training at the Orbitall Centre. That's just some of what you can expect during Advent @ the FEZ.

Even the grinch himself would leave full of Christmas spirit after a visit to the FEZ with its stage programme and Christmas kitchen where you can bake and decorate a whole load of festive treats.

A visit to the Christmas circus is also something special. Here, children can learn a range of acrobatic tricks, hula-hooping, juggling and more from professional circus artists.

And the best way to get what you need to make your house look festive is to visit the Christmas workshops. Use ceramics and wood to make Advent decorations and ornaments. Hnadmade candles, jewellery and soaps are a great gift for loved ones.

Last but not least, we also have a nostalgic Christmas carousel for you to try out and a shadow theatre for you to make your own Christmas stories. There's no better place to count down the days to the 24th and 25th December!

Kids' Christmas Circus

Your participation is required at this circus. Three professional circus artists will lead you through some of the best tricks possible on hula hoops, tightrope, poi, the most acrobatic somersaults and how to juggle.

Christmas Bakery

Would it even be Christmas if we didn't go into the kitchen to prepare all manner of biscuits and cakes? Once the biscuits are ready, the rest is up to you. How will you decorate yours?

Classic Christmas Carousel

It's not just children's eyes that will light up at the sight of this vintage carousel. Come and join us for a ride and you'll immediately find your Christmas spirit no matter how old you are.
