Live Animals And A Wooden Stable: San Anton School Is Going Big For Its 10th Anniversary Christmas Market
We'll be there with (jingle) bells on
It's starting to look a lot like Christmas... and the festive peeps over at San Anton School are getting ready for a special 10th version of their famous Christmas market.
The market is definitely a people-pleaser because there is something for everyone. Think traditional decorations, gift-wrapping, home accessories. giftware, jewellery, wooden toys, advent calendars, Poinsettia and Holly plants, chocolates, toys, gourmet foods, spices, home-made jams, chutneys and so much more.
They're pulling out all the stops by creating a Santa Grotto of dreams where the bambinos can sit on the lap of Father Christmas while the school-kids rehearse their live performance of the Live Crib (featuring a real wooden stable specially-created for the show).
Live sheep, lambs and a donkey would not have been possible without the help of the local farmers, who will bring tons of magic to their Nativity scene.
Expect a plethora of kid's activities such as letter writing to Santa, baking Xmas cookies, bouncy castles, crafts and a Go-Kart race track.
Throughout the evening, you'll be able to marvel at performances provided by the cast of Sleeping Beauty (by FM Theatre Productions) and the Barbetti Barbershop Quartet.
Foodies can head over to the school's kitchen to watch a Christmas Cooking masterclass run by top chef Michael Diacono and his mother. So whether you've been naughty or nice, you'll definitely have a place at San Anton School's Christmas Market.
It all kicks off this Sunday 25th November. As of next week, no one's allowed to complain that it's too early to get in the festive spirit!
