Just a few places remain for Tea With Santa – the hugely popular get together with Father Christmas hosted by Preston’s park rangers.

The events, which run every year in Avenham Park Pavilion in the run up to Christmas, are almost always sold out.

But a few places are still available for the tea party this Sunday, December 8, starting at 3pm.

And, to cope with the demand, the rangers have also organised a final extra visit from Santa, to take place on Sunday, December 22 from 1pm to 3pm, just in the nick of time for Christmas Eve.

Kids enjoy a tasty meal by the Yuletide fireplace before making Christmas cards and festive crafts and taking photos with Santa in his sleigh.

Tickets are £10. Call 01772 906471 to book.
