    Fancy something free and educational? Well it’s your last weekend before Christmas to visit the Geffrye Museum. Enjoy a magical glimpse into how Christmas has been celebrated in English homes through the centuries – from as early as 1600. Did you know Parliament once banned Christmas? Strange! Enjoy local festive food and find unusual cards and gifts in the shop.

      What a way to bring the family together. The Muppets is a classic to enjoy with the whole family – don’t miss it!

        Try Jamie Oliver’s ‘Everything Cookies’ - a quirky, but easy-to-make recipe. And by ‘Everything’ the recipe means adding any treats you have hanging about such as leftover nuts, dried fruit, toffees, chocolate. Great to do with the little ones – and for snacking on during Sunday hangovers.

          Visit the Real Food Christmas Marketfor some seriously tasty treats. It’s only running until the 23rd December so this is your last weekend to grab some goodies. Head out and make the most of this milder winter.

            If it's not frosty enough for your taste outside, head to a local icing rink instead. Head to Bolton's winter festivalto ice skate and visit Santa's grotto in one.

              Enjoy traditional Christmas carols around the tree at 6pm at Ston Easton Park in Bath for a truly festive experience. Enjoy mince pies, mulled wine and hot chocolate with family and friends. What a great way to see off the weekend.

                You may or may not be a Star Wars fan but this latest addition to the franchise is definitely worth a watch.

                  Because it's the final!
