Christmas / New Year Opening Times

The grounds at Basildon Park remain open for local walks and much-needed access to nature for pre-booked visitors. In line with government guidance and tiering restrictions, our Toolshed kiosk is takeaway only and the mansion, main tea-room and shop are closed. To avoid disappointment please book your visit in advance. Basildon Park is closed on 24 & 25 Dec.

We are keeping this service open in case anyone with a mobility problem needs to get around town until 1 pm Christmas eve.

We would like to say a special thank you to everyone who has shopped with us this year.

Whether it was the fresh produce, locally sourced meats, British cheese, and tasty sweet treats that kept you coming back or simply that we were the convenient choice in an unusual climate, we thank you.

By shopping local, you have not only supported our business through uncertain times, but you have also indirectly helped your local community and some wonderful local suppliers too.

We have all faced many personal challenges in 2020 but we are filled with hope and promise for the New Year.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas,

Love from your local farm shop x

Ardington Arts-Merry Christmas and Thank you

Dear all

We have received so many personal messages from you this year to say how much you have been thankful for Arts & Crafts from Ardington. We have had a roller coaster of a year, with the desperation of closing the school and the exhilaration of starting online – all happening at once!

It’s our turn now to send you our personal message of gratitude for your warm support, your encouraging comments when we try something new and for your consistent enthusiasm for all things Arts & Crafts. We would not have survived without you, and we know that although there may be worse to come, we WILL be seeing you again soon, and we WILL be able to share our traditional warm welcome again at some point.

So we wrote the little greeting last night after a sherry or two – the blots are mostly intentional! Thank you for being you. We look forward to seeing you in 2021 and in the meantime, wish you a safe and peaceful Christmas and New Year.

Lots of love, Yvonne, Simon and Gemma

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all at 
The Watermill Theatre

Thank you for your support of The Watermill Theatre during this difficult year. 2020 will be remembered for many reasons, but we take heart in the generosity, loyalty and spirit of you, our audiences and supporters, who spur us on in the face of adversity.

As we step forward into a new year, we do so with optimism and renewed purpose. We promise to continue working hard, behind the scenes to bring you inspiring theatre in 2021, and we look forward to welcoming you back to The Watermill next year. 

We will be in touch with details when we are able to reopen our doors once more. In the meantime, we hope you will enjoy the opportunity to experience The Watermill’s Christmas show in your own home this year by purchasing a ticket to our beautifully filmed performance of 
A Christmas Carol. For more details and to book, please visit our website.

From myself and the whole team at The Watermill, we wish you a happy and safe holiday season and send our heartfelt thanks for all your support this year. 

We could not have done it without you. Thank you.

Festive wishes,


Paul Hart
Artistic & Executive Director
