Chance for children to meet Father Christmas in Lichfield

Santa will be taking a break from getting ready for the festive period to visit Lichfield this weekend.

Mr and Mrs Claus will be at Curborough Countryside Centre on Saturday and Sunday to find out what young visitors want for Christmas.

A spokesperson said: “Children can fill in a special letter to Father Christmas and will receive their own personal reply by email. They can also have a chat with Father Christmas and receive a gift, while parents are welcome to take their own photographs.

“Because the baby reindeers get lonely while their mummies and daddies pull Santa’s sleigh, we invite any children that are trying to give up their dummies to give them to the baby reindeers. Every dummy donated will earn an extra little treat from Father Christmas.”

Santa will be at the centre from 10.30am to 5pm on Saturday and 10.30am to 4pm on Sunday. Admission is £4.50. More details are available online.
