Christmas decorations

18 and 19 December

Family late

Wave off Father Christmas before he returns to the North Pole on Sunday 19 December and explore The Box’s galleries out of hours. Enjoy some acoustic music, Christmas crafts and tasty treats in The Kitchen & Bar too. £5 per person. Book online.

 

Great gifts

From cuddly woolly mammoths to locally sourced textiles and jewellery to candles and tea lights filled with festive fragrances – there’s something for all ages and tastes in The Box’s carefully curated shop, both onsite and online. 

 

For the person who has everything, gifting membership to The Box for free entry to exhibitions and Smeaton’s Tower and discounted entry to Elizabethan House, or buying tickets to spring events is also a great idea.

Have a cultured Christmas 

If you live locally or you have visitors coming to stay, The Box is the perfect day out for anyone spending Christmas in the South West. It’s also a last chance to visit the ‘Mayflower 400: Legend & Legacy’ exhibition which closes on 2 January. Don’t miss the opportunity to see this award-winning show before it comes to an end.

 

Songlines: Tracking the seven sisters 

An ancient creation saga featuring a dramatic chase across the Australian deserts is at the heart of this ground breaking exhibition which is on display at The Box and The Levinsky Gallery at the University of Plymouth until 27 February. Visit while it’s on show – Plymouth is the only UK venue on the international tour!

For the person who has everything, gifting membership to The Box for free entry to exhibitions and Smeaton’s Tower and discounted entry to Elizabethan House, or buying tickets to spring events is also a great idea.
