Father Christmas will bring seasonal joy to local children - not to mention quite a few adults - when he and his reindeer visit Bacton Wood near North Walsham and Holt Country Park at the weekend.
As well as the chance to meet Father Christmas, children and their accompanying adults will have an opportunity to follow a Christmas trail.
During the walk through the woods they can learn about animals and their winter hibernation habits, collect items to make a wildlife treat, and make a Christmas spectacle.
At the end of the trail reindeer from Melsop Park Farm will be waiting for their Christmas snack, and of course there will be presents for all the children.
Father Christmas and his reindeer will visit Bacton Wood on Saturday 14 December, and Holt Country Park on Sunday 15 December, 10.30am – 12.45pm on each day (last entry to the trail 12.15pm).
Entry is £3 per child, adults free (all children to be accompanied by an adult, please), no booking required.
Everyone is advised to wear appropriate footwear and to wrap up warm. Dogs on leads welcome. Hot drinks will be available and there will be a small parking charge at Holt Country Park.
