On Saturday 6th December 2014 The Friends of Honeywood Museum and Ecolocal once again managed a truly awesome Carshalton Frost Fair, the third in successive years.

The weather was perfect; bright sunny and frosty, with ice on the ponds. Just perfect for the occasion.
Once again the crowds arrived in force, and a great time was had by all attending.

Honeywood Walk, Festival Walk and the Memorial Gardens were full of stalls (and people!), and the two 'stages' highlighted a variety of live music and acts throughout. It was once again a terrific family occasion. Honeywood Museum was full of visitors and families, Father Christmas and his elf were exhausted by their popularity, the Punch & Judy show kept the youngsters enthralled and amused, and The Play of Light Theatre held everyone spell-bound! The Museum was full of laughter, which was so lovely to hear.


A very special 'Thank You' to those who have permitted our pictures to be put up for others to enjoy on this page, and to those who have offered pictures as a record of the occasion.

Events at Honeywood Museum

Father Christmas will be in his Grotto from 1-6pm.  He will have a break for a cup of hot cocoa between 3.30 and 4pm: tickets £3 each child.  So that each visit is a magical experience, Santa will see up to a maximum of two children at a time (with two adults looking on). Larger family groups visiting Santa can be accommodated in two (or more) timed slots.

Punch and Judy performed by Pauline's Puppets: tickets £2.00 each
Performances: 2.30, 3.30, 4.30 and 5.30pm

The Lemon Princess, an Old Persian fairy tale performed by the Play of Light Theatre Company: tickets £1.00 each
Performances: 2.05, 3.05, 4.05 and 5.05pm

Our Ticket Booth for the above events will open outside Honeywood at 12.45pm. Tickets are not available in advance.

Parking for children’s buggies: We expect a large number of people to attend the events at Honeywood Museum during the Frost Fair, and buggies and scooters will not be permitted in the Museum. We are providing manned buggy parking outside the Museum, and will ask that buggies etc. are left with our volunteers here.

Please note buggies and other items are left entirely at the owners risk. The Friends of Honeywood Museum, Honeywood Museum and LB Sutton can therefore not accept any responsibility for your personal property left in this area
