Visitors to the Victoria Art Gallery can get into the festive spirit with “Decorate December” (from Sunday 1 December through to Sunday 5 January 2014) where they can explore the Gallery to find hidden reindeer!

A “Decorating Fashion” drop-in event takes place at the Fashion Museum on Sunday 15 December, from 12 noon to 3pm. Here children can have a go at creating their own fashion-related festive decorations.

The Victoria Art Gallery stages “Fantastic Festivities” on Saturday 21 December, from 2pm to 3.30pm. Children aged 5-11 are welcome to make wise men and Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer. Tickets cost £4 per child; children must be accompanied by an adult and places should be booked in advance on 01225 477233

On Saturday 28 December, the Roman Baths invites you to “Celebrate the New Year!” from 11am to 3pm. You can find out about Janus – the Roman god of beginnings and transitions – from where the month January gets its name, and design your own Janus New Year spinner to hang up at home.

Normal admission charges apply, but all the activities are free once on site (except for “Fantastic Festivities”). Bath & North East Somerset Council residents are entitled to free admission with a Discovery Card.

For all these events, children must be accompanied by an adult.
