New for 2023, St Martin’s is hosting gingerbread decorating workshops for children in the stunning St Martin’s Gallery, next to the Crypt Café.
Children will have the chance to decorate gingerbread biscuits, baked by hand by St Martin’s Head Chef and shaped into an array of festive shapes including stars, Christmas trees and gingerbread people. Santa’s Elves will tell tales full of festive cheer of Santa's love of gingerbread and lead a sing-along finale of Christmas songs with the children.
This 45-minute session is an ideal way to get creative this festive season! Warming glasses of mulled wine will be available for adults to purchase while the little ones decorate their biscuits, or you can pop to the café for special hot chocolate.
At the end of the session, children can take their festive creations with them as gingerbread treats to enjoy and share at home, and Gingerbread decorating kits are able to buy in the shop as a perfect souvenir of your visit. Suitable for children aged 4+, the Gingerbread Decorating Workshops are available on Saturdays and Sundays from Saturday 25 November, and daily from Monday 18 December until Sunday 23 December.
Workshops run on the hour from 10am. Tickets are £20 for one child and up to two accompanying adults. Every child requires a separate ticket, and children must be accompanied by an adult.
