Father Christmas' Grotto

Join us this December for a unique storytelling and grotto experience. 

Father Christmas has hidden his Kernow office somewhere in Truro Cathedral and we need your help to find him. Meet our elves at the Christmas Tree outside the Cathedral! As you walk around the Cathedral, you will hear the stories of James Bubb, the first Clerk of Works of Truro Cathedral in the 1800s. You will also hear the tale of the Cathedral Mouse, who wishes they could sing with the children in the choir. This Christmas, their dream comes true and you will be able to hear the mouse sing in St Mary’s Chapel. You will then get the chance to meet Father Christmas once his hiding place has been uncovered, where you will be able to tell him all about what you would like for Christmas and you will receive a gift. 

Each show is 30 minutes long and requires walking between spaces and traversing staircases. The event runs three times an hour on Wednesday 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd December.

​The time slots are as follows: 15:00, 15:20, 15:40, 16:00, 16:20, 16:40, 17:00, 17:20, 17:40, 18:00, 18:20, 18:40


Each ticket covers one child (aged 2 – 12) & one adult. Babes in arms under 2yrs are free with a ticket holder. Over 12 years are counted as an adult. Tickets cost £6 each.  If there is more than one adult attending per child, then additional adult tickets will need to be purchased.

To book for an extra accompanying adult please book a ticket and put "extra adult" in the box marked "child's name".
