To complete the Christmas magic, Santa will be here on both days with his Storytime sessions.
Children will enjoy a festive story, plus a wrapped gift in the Museum’s specially staged, Hawksworth Hall.
Sessions cost £8.00 per child, in addition to the event admission price.
As a guide, we recommend that sessions are suitable for children between 3 and 10 years old.
Please note: in order to limit numbers, no more than one accompanying adult per child will be admitted to Santa’s Storytime.
Each session lasts approximately 20 minutes.
Sessions take place on 4 & 5 December at the following times:
10.15am, 11.00am, 11.45am, 13.00pm, 13.45pm, 14.30pm, 15.15pm, 16.00pm.
