Visitors can also expect activities with the craft market, tombola and market stalls, roasted chestnuts and festive treats at Parkers Yard, which is run by The Split Screen Coffee. The frameshop will also be lit with LED candles to give it a Dickensian feel.

Children can take a trip to Santa’s magical grotto, where Father Christmas will be greeting young and old alike at the museum.


Sarah Godfrey, manager of the museum, said: “There is something for everyone this year from arts and crafts to mulled wine and roasted chestnuts, and families can pay a visit to Father Christmas.
