Glittering Festive Celebrations


The Christmas Garden Brunch at Al Forsan

Take time away from the daily grind and head to the crisp desert air of Al Forsan, where the festive spirit is already in the air. The occasion is festive and the menu crammed with favourites – including turkey with all the trimmings. 

Entertainment options galore keep everyone smiling and the little ones skipping around – with kite flying, face painting on the lawn, pony and camel rides, magician, juggler and mini-zoo some of what’s on offer. A three-piece band belts out the hits, a raffle draw with big prizes to be won, and you can look forward to the fun-loving big man himself. That’s right - the Jolly Old Man shows up with festive cheer and gifts, leaving his sled parked amidst the dunes.
