AUTUMN is just unfolding but for the Winterval team it is always Christmas time. Last week they announced the first details of this year’s programme.

The full list of events for Winterval 2019, running from 23 November to 23 December, will be revealed in October. But already it has been confirmed that Santa will be returning to the atmospheric Choristers’ Hall.

Momentum Events, Waterford event creation specialists, will produce the experience at Santa’s Medieval Chambers in the 13th century hall in the Medieval Museum.

Visitors will be transported through enchanted realms as they enter from The Mall to begin their journey to meet Santa and his helpers.

Tickets for Santa’s grotto are now on sale, as well as Winterval on Ice and the Winterval Express Train.

Bookings are open at, and there are limited early bird tickets.
