Celebrate Yuletide on the farm at the National Museum of Rural Life, East Kilbride.

#ChristmasFair

Say hello to Santa and book a trip on the tractor with the Christmas elf. Get some great gifts from the Christmas Fair stalls and catch the panto in our theatre, or get hands-on with some seasonal craft activities for all the family.

As well as our own farmyard favourites around the site, you can visit Shetland ponies, goats and alpacas in our animal marquee and settle down on the hay bales for some festive storytelling.

Up at the farm you can meet some donkeys at our farmyard nativity scene, make some ‘reindeer food’ to take home and try your hand at some stock judging, as well as other family activities to put you in the Christmas spirit.
