Christmas launches with a bang in Doncaster this weekend with the Visit Doncaster Countdown to Christmas on Saturday 17th November!
The special one day event will be a busy day for Father Christmas as he brings his special story time sessions and some of his reindeer to the Market Place and sets the Countdown to Christmas clock ticking!
The Visit Doncaster elves will give all children under 12 a book to take home.
From 4pm, the action will move to Sir Nigel Gresley Square for the main stage event with live entertainment, rides and hot food, concluding at 6.45 with the switching on of the tree and fireworks finale.
Brodsworth Hall: An Audience with Father Christmas
Have you been on your best behaviour this year? If so Father Christmas is waiting for you at Brodsworth Hall. Gather round for Christmas tales by the tree and take the chance to get a photo with the big man himself. There’s a gift in store for every girl and boy too.
Enjoy a breakfast with Santa at Normanby Hall. He will be napping, getting ready for his Christmas deliveries, so wake him from his slumber and share stacks of delicious pancakes. Then, join Mother Christmas for a traditional story by the roaring fire and unwrap your present. Afterwards there will be Christmas crafts in the Hall, before you head outside and watch the Normanby team feed the magnificent deer. Families will also receive a complimentary ticket for the land train.
With the addition of ‘Elf School’, this years Christmas event is set to be even bigger & better! Also on the agenda; meet Santa (of course!), build-a-cuddle, make reindeer food with Mrs. Christmas, pick a quality toy in our North Pole toyshop, enjoy admission to the farm, plus lots more!
