Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year and what makes it special is spending time with family and friends. The Christmas Makers is an online destination for planning your season of festivities. With over 20 years' experience in bringing Christmas magic to 1000's of families, we are the creators, innovators & collaborators of many famous and spectacular Christmas events. For those who love spending time with family in front of the fire, we also offer a Virtual Christmas Experience based on our signature Christmas event held annually at Glenarm Castle.
Glenarm Castle is renowned for hosting one of the UK & Ireland’s most spectacular Christmas Experiences. Attracting in excess of 10,000 annually, families come from far and near to enjoy this traditional and festive occasion with a host of attractions for all the family, including a charming nativity scene with real animals, story-telling and gingerbread making with Mrs Claus and an extremely popular Polar Express train adventure, which takes families on a magical journey through the stunning and historic grounds of Glenarm Castle. Most importantly, Father Christmas and his elves are there, ready to welcome the children into their busy workshop as they prepare for their busiest time of the year.
The Christmas Experience sells out in minutes each year with many families missing out on tickets. The team behind the event, directed by Father Christmas himself, now offer a Virtual Christmas Experience in bringing some of that magic right to your living room. You will receive a personalised video message from Father Christmas himself and videos featuring Story-Telling with Mrs Claus, Festive Baking with Granny Claus and an Elf Masterclass with ‘Jon the Elf’. You can also have a gift and activity pack from Father Christmas posted to your home along with a letter template and envelope for sending your Wish List back to Father Christmas.
