FATHER Christmas will be making a special visit to Barnsley Town Hall on Saturday.

The doors will open for the Christmas event at 10am, where children can visit Santa together with his wife Mrs Claus in their magical grotto by the main stairs until 2pm.

Upstairs there will be a craft market in the reception rooms.

A spokesperson said: "Look out for a wealth of lovely handmade gifts such as glassware, bags, jewellery and cupcakes.

"Across the hallway, the council’s chamber will come alive with performances from Birkwood Primary School's choir and the mayor's chosen charity, Creative Recovery."
