The magic of Christmas starts this weekend when Santa arrives with his reindeer and elves.
Little ones can book in with the father of Christmas himself on Saturday or Sunday (November 28 and 29) from 11am to 4pm at the Sue Ruder St John’s Hospice in Moggerhanger.
The grotto includes a 20 minute crafting experience, pictures and time to ask the big man any burning questions.
There will also be a craft fayre with gifts galore and refreshments.
Fay Boissieux, Santa’s chief elf said: “We’re so excited to see Santa at St John’s this year; it really will be a magical Christmas.”
