Children have the opportunity to meet Father Christmas when he parks his sleigh in the stables at Erewash Museum this month as part of the magical Santa Saturdays on the 11 and 18 of December between 11am and 3pm.

As well as visiting Santa you can take part in the museum’s festive family trail, pop into the gift shop for those last minute presents and have a warming drink in the Old Stables Tearoom.

Lead Member for Community Engagement, Councillor Val Clare, says:

“The visits by Father Christmas are always very popular so be sure to book early for your chance to meet with Santa and enjoy a festive time at the award-winning Erewash Museum.”
