A delightful Victorian experience at Fota House this Christmas! In a traditional Dickens's tale, families joined Ebenezer Scrooge as he discovered the true meaning of Christmas on a magical tour through this beautiful Regency House. Fota House in association with RSVP (Red Sandstone Varied Productions) invited you to this cheery adaptation with characters such as the jolly Cook, representing the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, Belle the former love of Ebeneezer's life, and the delightful Mrs. Cratchitt to meet them in the drawing room before a visit with Santa Claus. Songs, storytelling and games and plenty of Elves to make sure the children left their wishes on the Wishing Tree!

This interactive experience of ‘The Magic of Santa’ at Fota House & Gardens provided a wonderfully traditional Christmas treat for all the family. Every child recieved a gift from Santa Claus and there were lots of seasonal photo opportunities throughout the house. This special Christmas event, gave families a unique experience, as they not only discover the house, but they become part of a cheery adaptation of the Charles Dicken's world famous Christmas story.
