Advent Christmas Experience & Market, Weald & Downland Museum, West Sussex


Over the weekend of the 25th & 26th November, the Weald & Downland Living Museum, home of the BBC's Repair Shop, hosts its annual Advent Christmas Experience and Market.

Around 100 hand-selected stallholders representing the best in arts, crafts and food from the Weald region have been invited to take part, and naturally I'll be there, with jingle bells on!

There will be lots to see, do and hear over the weekend, with the opportunity to meet the donkeys, enjoy festive treats and say hello to Father Christmas, busy in his festive workshop. 

This is a ticket-only event, with tickets limited in number for each day.

Entry will be via pre-booked tickets only for non-members. Members do not need to book, but must have a valid membership card to gain entry. Due to the popularity of this event, special offers and complimentary passes will not be accepted.

To provide the best visitor experience the museum staggers entry using timed tickets. There are six entry times available, with the first entry at 10.30am and the last entry at 1pm. There is no time limit once you are on site. NB: the Museum closes at 4pm and the last shuttle bus will leave at 4.30pm.

Parking for this event will be at the Goodwood Motor Circuit (PO18 0PH) with complimentary shuttle buses transporting visitors to and from the Goodwood car park to the Museum throughout the day. There will be toilet facilities available at the Motor Circuit and the Aerodrome Café will be open from 10am, should you wish to get a refreshment before boarding the bus.

Please note: There will be no visitor parking at the Museum, with an exception for disabled visitors
