An afternoon for all generations full of surprises!
2-5:30pm: Children can craft their own Christmas presents, hear the Christmas story (in English, French and Swiss-German), sing hymns in Swiss and British tradition and carve their own Räbeliecht (turnip lantern)
4pm: Samichlaus (Father Christmas) and his Schmutzli will make a visit. He might even have little presents for the younger ones among the visitors and listen to their Sprüchli. Please sign up with Anna: firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 December or on Eventbrite. (Parents: send Anna a little list about the nice and the naughty things your child has done and that the Samichlaus should know about!)
5:30pm: Räbeliechtliumzug (turnip parade) through Covent Garden
Hot drinks and snacks will be provided.
The event is free – donations are much appreciated.
