FROM a Christmas market to festive trails the Milestone Museum in Basingstoke will be hosting lots of fun events this December.

This will include the Milestones Christmas Market on Saturday, December 2 and Sunday, December 3.

It will be the perfect opportunity for residents to do their Christmas shopping – and find something a little bit different. The market will give visitors the opportunity to browse seasonal gifts and treats at independent stalls throughout the museum. 

Children will be able to meet Santa from Saturday, December 2 to Saturday, December 23 in his magical Milestones grotto within the heart of the museum's decorated indoor streets.

On top of this from Tuesday, November 28 all the way until Saturday, December 23 the museum's period streets will be decorated for the season and a giant Christmas tree will give a warm, festive welcome.

Children can help Father Christmas find his lost reindeer with the special Reindeer Spotter trail around the museum, while the smell of mulled wine and the taste of mince pies will transport adults into the atmosphere of a perfect Christmas.
