Festive fun with Stagecoach

26 Nov 2020

festive fun 1366



It's been a challenging year for everyone so we thought we'd share a bit of festive joy and share some of the Christmas events that are still going ahead this December



This year, the beautiful grounds at Cardiff Castle will have even more festive family fun than usual. There will also be a selection of stalls selling sweet Christmas treats.The Castle gift shop will also be offering a lovely collection of locally made products.There's free admission to the Castle’s Public Square over the festive period. Due to social distancing, there may be a wait during peak times.


From 29 November - 23 December, there'll be special tours for single-family / bubble groups, ending in a private meeting with Santa Claus. Unfortunately, all the tickets for Santa have already been sold but if you have been lucky enough to bag yourself a ticket, or fancy a festive day exploring the castle, we can get you there safely.

Our friends at Stagecoach South West have out together some fun activities your kids can create at home to get ready for Christmas in style.  


Simply download and print out the activity packs, with full step-by-step instructions and printed templates. Each project just requires some cardboard boxes and for the Advent Calendar some loo rolls (if you’ve managed to track any down ahead of the panic buying that is!) 


We recommend starting with the Stagecoach Bus Advent Calendar, so you’ve got plenty of time to get ready for the 1st December. You’ll be able to fill this colourful project with treats of your choice to countdown the days until Santa arrives. 




Next why not have a go at our Stagecoach Christmas tree, this one just needs some glue and a cardboard box- so you can put all your online shopping packaging to good use. Kids and adults can have fun getting this attractive table decoration ready ahead of the big day. 



Then we’ve got some fun Christmas tree decorations to have a go at, these will guarantee you’ve got the best-looking tree on your street, and are perfect for the little bus enthusiast! 


 Have fun and share your creations with us #StagecoachChristmasCraft
