Children are in for a treat because Ashford is welcoming Father Christmas to the Festive Family Fun Day on Saturday 18th November in Ashford Town Centre.
A cosy grotto, complete with twinkling fairy lights and snowy surroundings, will be in Park Mall to make our special guests, Father Christmas and his helper Elf, feel at home.
Children will have the chance to meet Father Christmas and receive a hand-wrapped present. Visiting times are between 9am and 5pm on Saturday 18th November and admission costs £2 per child. Families can find the grotto in Park Mall.
Father Christmas will then be available to visit in his grotto every Saturday from the 25th November until 16th December between 11am and 4pm. On Sunday 17th December through to Saturday 23rd December he will be there every day from 11am to 4pm. On Sunday 24th December he’ll be there between 10am and 4pm.
We will be running a ‘‘Elfie Selfie’ competition in Park Mall. To enter the competition head to Unit 25, Park Mall, next to Made in Ashford, and take your best ‘Elfie Selfie'.
