Competition: Enjoy the “Spirit of Christmas Past” at Cultra this Sunday

Competition over - congratulations to Roger! Enjoy the day.

Want to win a family pass to enjoy the Spirit of Christmas Past that will be wafting across the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum at Cultra this Sunday? There will be seasonal smells, Christmas fayre, a magic show, as well as brass bands and carol singing around the Christmas tree between 11am and 4pm on Sunday 11 December.

You can visit the Christmas Market to pick up a gift or two or some ready-made decorations. Witness Santa on Trial for theft in the Omagh Meeting House.

Or settle back to hear renowned Charles Dickens expert Leon Litvack recreating the magic of A Christmas Carol, with a dramatic reading in Victorian costume. Catch the Magician conjuring up his magic.

And then step back in time and discover how seasonal decorations transformed people's homes and be inspired with some decorative ideas for your own home.

Children can write their letter to Santa who will be taking time out of his busy schedule to warm his toes in front of the fire … though that’ll need to be booked in advance since there’s only so long Santa’s toes can survive before they’ll go as red as Rudolf’s nose! But the bearded gentleman does promise to appear at the end of the day to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas.

During Advent, the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum are hosting all kinds of other seasonal festivities, including Christmas Evenings on Friday 9 and 16 December with brass bands, making cinnamon toast over an open fire, decoration making and Santa.

To enter to win a family ticket for Sunday 11 December, simply email before 2pm on Friday 9 December and leave a name and contact number so the promoter can get in touch with details about the ticket. One winner will be randomly selected from the entries.

Good luck!
