The Farmer’s Arms, Lowick Green – La12 8DT
Enjoy live music, carol singing, local craft stalls and demos, workshops for all the family, mulled wine and a special seasonal Farmer’s Arms menu!
Solve all your gift giving worries in one go with our stallholders or in the Honest Shop, and while you’re about it make sure to treat yourself to a few things too. There’ll be a plethora of local makers and producers selling food and drink, fresh produce and crafts, as well as drop-in making sessions in our workshops to help you create hand-crafted gifts. From 6pm, it’ll be an evening of curated cocktails and electronica by Fern Oxley too!
The inn will be beautifully decorated to bring in the festive spirit, and there’ll be winter warmers like our own homemade mulled wine. In The Stable Bar we’ll be serving a special winter menu by the roaring log fire.

Enjoy the festive sounds of this local group of carol singers as their joyful hymns ring through the pub’s historic walls.
