Getactiveabc believes in Christmas and will be brightening December nights with some twinkling magic!

Christmas South Lake Leisure Centre

Norad is tracking Santa’s sleigh all the way to South Lake Leisure Centre, Craigavon this Christmas from December 1 – 19.

For only £7 per child, get creative at a Christmas workshop, decorating your own gingerbread man and designing a Christmas letter, get active at South Lake Soft Play and a special Christmas NERF gun challenge activity session, and get excited to post your letter, visit Santa and receive a small gift.

Located in Craigavon City Park, extend your visit with a walk around the lake and the heart-warming Tannaghmore Live Nativity at Tannaghmore Gardens and Animal Farm.

Running Sunday, December 5 until Sunday, January 2, from 10am – 4pm each day, discover Jesus, Mary, Joseph and the three Kings in a remake of that world famous stable complete with donkey, sheep, cows and other animals.

Featuring Galway sheep, Irish Moiled cows and pygmy goats, you will find this heart-warming nativity display in a converted outhouse on the farm.

Get a Christmas sparkle in your eyes with sled-tastic ‘Festive Snowtubing’ at Craigavon Golf & Ski Centre, from Monday, December 20 to Thursday, December 23, with snowtubing slots from 1pm – 9pm for groups of five or more.

Get into the festive spirit and ‘be a Claus for a good cause’ by joining the Lord Mayor Alderman Glenn Barr in a Santa Saunter at Banbridge Solitude Park on Sunday, December 12 from 3pm – 4pm.

Santa Claus himself will be taking time out of his busy schedule to join the saunter and all proceeds will go to the Lord Mayor’s chosen charities. ‘Guide Dogs NI’ and ‘Angel Wishes’.

Before the naughtiness begins, be nice to yourself with a getactiveabc ‘Join Now, Pay in the New Year’ Christmas Membership Offer.
