Santa comes to Winchester Guildhall

Press Release: 28/11/2005

In order to make the decision easier this year about where to spend Christmas, and with whom, Winchester Guildhall has come up with a solution for that trickiest of annual family decisions.  On Sunday 18 December the Guildhall is offering a family Christmas lunch with a visit from Santa too!

When Santa Come to Sunday Lunch not only will there be traditional seasonal fayre on offer but also a mouth-watering selection of tasty alternatives.  Younger members of the family can enjoy their own special menu and Santa will have a gift for every child under 14. 

Winchester City Council's Guildhall Manager, Andrew Jacques, said the event was a way for the broader community to enjoy the facilities the venue has to offer. 

"Winchester Guildhall is a favourite venue to many party organisers at this time of year but we cater for a whole range of users, including the many families who use the Courtyard Café throughout the year.  We decided we'd like to offer them and others the opportunity to celebrate the festive season with family and with friends over a sumptuous meal in the setting of one of our beautiful suites with the added bonus of not needing to prepare, cook or serve food themselves or then to have to tackle the washing up!"

Reservations are required in advance and can be made by calling Winchester Guildhall on 01962 840 820 or email guildhall@winchester.gov.uk  Prices for adults are £15.95 and for children under 14 £8.00 (children under 3 are free).
