The Penventon Park Hotel in Redruth has announced a three-day Festival of Christmas which will take place from November 24 to 26. The hotel will be working in partnership with Redruth Town Council to celebrate the town's annual Christmas lights switch on, and offer families and festival goers the chance to browse Christmas gifts from local artisan craft makers whilst soaking up the Yuletide atmosphere.

With something to entertain the whole family, from a free festive treasure hunt to feasting upon delicious seasonal fare at the street food stalls, it will be a Christmas bonanza not to be missed.
