We're encouraging visitors to the Festival and mArkets to give themselves plenty of time! There will be plenty of great stalls to browse through and some great gift ideas. We'll also have the Christmas cafe with mulled wine and many other festive Favourites. All proceeds from the Cafe go direct to our chosen charity, Bethany House. As well as the all important visit with Santa Claus, there is also a sneak peek behind the scenes in his workshop; the animal petting farm and of course story time with Mrs Claus and the elves' cinema!!! Sure you might have to come back for a second day!
