Organisers have said it will be a "cram packed day of fun" at Lakeside Village.

Centre Manager, Di Rodgers, said: “We’ve got a cram packed day of fun planned for our customers.

“This is going to a fantastic family fun day filled with festivities and lots of Christmas magic.”

Food lovers will also be in for a treat as there will be free mulled wine and roasted chestnuts.

And, festive food traders will be selling Yorkshire Pudding Wraps and German sausages.

Also The Grinch, 2018, will be shown on the day at 11am and Elf will be shown at 1pm.

The manager added: “Our customers requested family favourites which will be shown on the big screen and we’ve got biscuit decorating workshops running throughout the day.

“For this first time, this year, Lakeside Village is presenting an experience to see Father Christmas.”

Families are invited to go on an adventure to meet the great gift giver himself.

Booking the Santa’s Workshop Experience is highly recommended and can be done via the shopping centre’s website.
