WITH the cold of winter well and truly here, warm up with a sumptuous Yuletide feast in the Valley Rattler's Refreshment Room's café on Saturday July 7.

Soak up the old world ambience of the 99-year-young Old Gympie Station during Mary Valley Heritage Railway's Christmas in July celebration.

Warm up with a port and mince pie as you relax and listen to Christmas carols.

The Valley Rattler's charming heritage carriages will be stat

ioned outside the café to enhance the atmosphere of evening.

Savour a wonderful Christmas meal and beautiful surrounds as you enjoy the music of the wandering minstrel.

"We will be cooking up a traditional Christmas feast of pork roast, baked ham, roast turkey and roast veges," said Bianca, operator of the Valley Rattler's Refreshment Room café.

"For dessert we have the festive favourites pavlova and plum pudding and our guests can help themselves to tea and coffee," Bianca said.

A special guest from the North Pole will join in the celebrations along with the lovely Mrs Claus for a little winter magic. This adults' evening of music, food, fun and festivities will also include a trivia quiz -what more could you want?

Tickets for this great night of Christmas cheer are super value at only $40 per person.

A licensed bar will operate and the fun begins at 6.30pm.
