A park is being transformed into a magical winter wonderland.

Santa Claus will be seeing children in his fairy-lit Scandinavian arctic cabin in the Rising Sun Countryside Centre’s own Celtic Village.

From Saturday, December 5, families and children can get busy making natural crafts or dash around a cartoon reindeer trail before they meet Santa, and round off their festive visit with warm juice and chestnuts around the campfire.

All children will also receive a special gift. The event costs £8 per child and sibling discounts will be available when booking.

Bookings are available up until 16 December. For more information, or to book your place, call (0191) 6432241.

The centre will also be offering traditional Christmas lunches throughout the festive season.

Diners can choose between two or three courses at £17.75 or £20.75 per person from December 1, up until December 22.

For details on the Christmas lunches, contact the restaurant on (0191) 643 2242.
