Over FOUR WEEKENDS from the 30th November, Trevena Cross will be rocking Christmas with bells on, as the garden centre transforms into a festive winter wonderland! See the event on Facebook  or take a look at our Trevena Cross Christmas Flyer 2019

30th Nov-1st Dec / 7th-8th Dec/ 14th-15th Dec / 21st-22nd Dec 2019

10am – 4pm


Around 50 local traders will be showcasing some of the best food, drink, crafts and gifts the county has to offer. With a ‘new market’ each day, as the mix of traders changes, there’ll be no need to limit your visit to just one either – there will be something new to see on each visit, across the four weekends!

Some of the best street food around will offer the perfect sustenance when hunger strikes too! (Or take a pit stop in the on-site Garden Kitchen Cafe if you need a sit-down).

On the 21st featuring: Bangers On the Go,,  Penny’s Pies, Cornish Cream St Ives Ltd, Dynamite Valley Brewery, So Much Glass…

Trader lists for the other weekends will be published here as the markets draw closer so check back for the latest!

The market will be supported by a range of live musical entertainment situated on our Christmas bandstand, right amongst the market action. From the popular, returning act Mr B Presents, to the wonderfully spine tingling Porthleven Town Band, we’ll have a range of music to help create the most wonderful festive atmosphere for traders and shoppers alike!

All undercover, and accessible for all (wheelchair and pushchair friendly), the market will be situated next door to our popular, large Santa’s Grotto.

We will once again be hosting the BIGGEST Charity Fundraising Grotto in West Cornwall.

Cost: £7.50 per child, including gift, with all proceeds going to The Cove Macmillan Support Centre, Cornwall Air Ambulance, and other local community causes. Our grotto is being supported once again, by the Rotary Club of Helston-Lizard.

NO BOOKING REQUIRED – just turn up on the day! (*See below for information about bringing children with additional needs or specific requirements. Alternatively, drop us an email or give us a call (01736 763880) to discuss*) 

Take a walk through the snowy forest – with snow like you’ve never seen before – encounter wonderful winter wonderland photo opportunities, festive friends, and make the magical journey through to Santa’s Grotto, where you’ll meet the big man himself. All Santa visits include a great gift to take home!

Enjoy FREE parking – and plenty of it, plus wheelchair and pushchair friendly access across the entire garden centre means it will be a memorable day out for the whole family.

FOR THREE THURSDAYS from the 5th December we’ll be keeping the doors open late, so visitors can enjoy a moonlit festive visit to Trevena Cross! See the event on Facebook.

5th / 12th / 19th December 2019

3pm – 8pm

Father Christmas will also be working the twilight hours on Thursday evenings in December, in the run up to Christmas. Between 3pm and 8pm, he will take up residence in his grotto to welcome the pitter-patter of little feet. Plus, twinkling light displays, Christmas shopping, festive music, mulled wine and chestnuts, and a warming hearty meal in the café should make for a great festive evening out for the whole family! A slightly quieter Christmas experience without the hustle and bustle of our Christmas Market, but still with all the Christmas magic you could possibly want…

Our Thursday late opening grotto sessions also offer the perfect opportunity for children with additional needs / special requirements to visit Father Christmas, when it is a little quieter, and when Santa will be working hard to communicate via Makaton signing as required – useful for children who may have problems communicating through speech. If these Thursday sessions are not convenient we will of course do our absolute best to meet individual needs and requirements during the weekend days, be it through queue avoidance or supporting your visit any way we can, to make it the most special it can be. Contact us if you’d like to discuss your individual needs/requirements, and we’ll see what we can do!
