Santa will be at Landguard Fort on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th December so that all the good girls and boys can meet him before he prepares for his deliveries on Christmas Eve.

The fort will host Felixstowe's big festive family treat. There will be festive themed rooms and displays, craft activities, snow machines and a special Christmas children's trail to complete before visiting Santa and his elves in his magical grotto - where he'll have a present for every child.

Nicola Barker, Landguard Fort General Manager said: "Santa really enjoys coming to Landguard Fort and we'll be busy making it extra special for him and all his visitors. As well as the grotto and craft rooms there will be an exciting Felixstowe Museum exhibition as well as hot chocolate, mulled wine and mince pies to buy along with seasonal music to get everyone in the Christmas spirit!".
