10 Festive Family Activities for Kids in Gloucestershire & Wiltshire
We can’t wait to have a very merry time with all the children at Discover Activity Camps. Until then, we thought we’d share some local events that will get you feeling festive.
1. The Flight Before Christmas at Cotswold Airport

Join the elves onboard a Jumbo Jet at Cotswold airport for this immersive Christmas experience. Santa Claus and his team of elves are gearing up for another big Christmas delivery, and they’re asking for your help!
2. A Christmas Carnival of Orchestra
📍Location: St. George’s Bristol
Join Gaspard the friendly fox on his journey as he explores a real classic – Peter and the Wolf. Performed by creator and Classic FM host, Zeb Soanes, and accompanied by the Bristol Ensemble, this is the perfect way to introduce children to a live orchestra through storytelling.
