Children can personally deliver their wish-list letters to Father Christmas in his workshop and visitors can, after dusk, follow the fairy-light-lit path to an outdoor nativity scene and enjoy mince pies or cake and mulled wine in the gardens’ Lammas Room cafe.
There will also be handbell-ringing and craft activities, a tombola and carol singing. The event takes place from 2pm to 5pm. Entry costs £1 for adults and £3.50 for children (including workshops).
