FREE and Low Cost Winter & Festive Events (with no booking required)

Here is my annual list of FREE (or low cost) events which can be enjoyed with no booking required over the festive period. 

FREE and Low Cost Winter Events (with no booking required)

Please always double check opening times, dates and information direct with venues before heading out and when making plans as the information in this post may change over time and sadly, last minute event cancellations is not a rare occurrence in these current times.

FREE/ Low Cost Drop In Events

These drop-in events are included with National Trust Membership: 

Kids Club or Meerkat Movies at your Local Cinema  

In the run up to Christmas, most cinema chains run kids clubs on weekends and across school holidays where tickets are typically £2.50-£3 each. Films shown are not new releases but in December there are usually Christmas films that are a couple of years old included in this offer.

We used to do this regularly when the kids were little and it was a cheap day out when the weather wasn't great. 

Alternatively, many cinemas are part of Meerkat Movies where you can enjoy 2 for 1 films on a Tuesday or Wednesday. Our local (Vue Cramlington) is £4.99 per ticket as a standard price so when combined with this deal, it's a bargain at £2.50 each, especially as it includes new releases.

Walkergate's Special Christmas Bus 

New for this year, a Christmas-themed bus will be visiting various locations across the North East. Expect it to be all decked out for Christmas, a chance to visit Father Christmas and post your letter in a special bus post box. FREE to visit but they are asking for donations and hoping to raise £20k for Daft as a Brush. Find out more and check locations here. 

Visit Fenwick's Window & Newcastle's Christmas Markets 

Both are FREE to browse.
