This Saturday December 14, join The Model for a wonderful festive day of fun in Sligo.
From 12noon until 5pm there will be festive entertainment in all areas of The Model.
The Christmas vintage and craft fair that is Sligo Flea Market will be located in the foyer to allow visitors to shop for vintage clothing, jewelry, antiques and baked goods.
For this year’s annual Christmas celebration The Model screens a film for the entire family in the shape of Walt Disney’s classic, Peter Pan at 2.30pm.
Clap your hands if you believe in fairies and fly away with Peter and the Darling family to Neverland where they meet the Lost Boys and Tinkerbell, and of course the evil Pirate Captain Hook.
Adapted from J. M. Barrie’s famous story about ‘the boy who never grew up,’ which tells the magical tale of the three children from the Darling family, who receive a visit from Peter, who takes them to Never Land, ‘second star to the right and straight on ‘till morning’, where they meet the Lost Boys, Tiger Lily, Tinker Bell, and of course the evil Pirate, Captain Hook. Enjoy some mulled wine and seasonal treats while you are serenaded by carol singing and listen out for sleigh bells as there may be a surprise guest!
Dress up as your favourite character from this vintage Disney classic with prizes for best costume. Don’t forget the Model Café will also be open all day selling scrumptious treats.
Continuing the Christmas cheer The Model will screen two family films throughout the Christmas break.
On December 28th and 29th The Model will reopen especially for a few hours of family fun. On Saturday there will be a screening of Rise of the Guardians at 2.30pm. On Sunday the 29th, there will a screening of Room on the Broom at 2.30pm. The screening will be introduced by a reading of this wonderful fairy-tale, ‘A witch had a cat and a very tall hat.’
From the creators of The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child this is a story about friendship and family, based on the wonderful children’s picture book by Julie Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. This rhyming tale is about a kind witch, who invites a surprising collection of animals to join her on her broom, much to the frustration of her cat.
Tickets are €6 per person or €20 for a family of four (2adults +2children).
