Fairy Grotto

Fairy Grotto

03/11/2017 Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas at the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum without a visit from the Christmas Fairy. She will be appearing in her grotto with us again along with her woodland helpers as part of the Eastwood Christmas lights switch on event on 28th November.

Children can ask for their Christmas wishes to be granted and they will receive a special goody bag and a little sprinkling of her magic.Goody bag of toys

There will be something for the adults too, as there will be free mulled wine and cake made to a traditional Victorian recipe to try in the gift shop.  The shop is a great place to find unusual gifts, traditional toys and original little stocking-fillers for all ages.  The event always has a great festive atmosphere and is a lovely way to get into the Christmas spirit.  The Fairy Grotto is open from 6pm till 8pm, but will open at 5.30pm for those with access needs. There is no need to book, just come along. Admission is £4.00 per child which includes a goody bag and wishing bauble.

Other fun things to see and do at the Eastwood Christmas Lights Switch On event are an arts & crafts marquee in Scargill Walk car park, street entertainers, funfair rides and two stages featuring music acts.  There are road closures in place from 6-9pm along Nottingham Road, Scargill Walk and Victoria Street in Eastwood to allow the festivities to take place.

The D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum is an award winning visitor attraction in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire (not far from junction 26 of the M1 and the IKEA retail park).  It combines D.H. Lawrence’s authentically recreated childhood home, with an exhibition space celebrating the author’s life, work and humble beginnings.

From here you can also explore the surrounding countryside, which inspired his work. For more information please contact the details provided below.
