Christmas at Blackthorpe Barn Goes Online

Now, in its 29th year Christmas at Blackthorpe Barn is a little different this year with a new way of experiencing the lovely Christmas wonders, as it goes online.

The pandemic has led to us all having to adapt and change the way we do things, and it is no exception at Blackthorpe Barn. This year the Country Christmas Shop, the British Crafts and Santa’s Grotto are all going online, so you can still browse and shop the wonderful gifts, decorations and treats and meet Santa, all from the comfort of your own home…

Shopping at the Country Christmas shop is still exciting as you can browse and purchase items from Blackthorpe Barn’s website. Bursting with everything Christmassy, you can enjoy the full range of Christmas delights and gifts online.

Santa is being transported into a new virtual world, live from his wintry grotto. Youngsters aged between two and nine can meet Father Christmas, albeit virtually. Tickets are available online.

The British Crafts are also a new and exciting online experience, accessible via the same website. Website visitors can enjoy being inspired as they browse the amazing hand-crafted items all made by talented crafts people throughout Britain.

Famous Rougham Estate Christmas Trees will be available at Blackthorpe Barn as usual. This year it is cashless payment with trees available from 27th November until 22nd December, choose from freshly cut to pot grown in many shapes and sizes.
