FINAL preparations are in place for the Barnslay Town Hall's Christmas extravaganza.

This years annual event will take place on Saturday December 1 between 10am and 3pm where Santa will be waiting to welcome WABers.

Festive activities, crafts and treats for the family will be available on the day and the man in red himself - Father Christmas will also be present along with Mrs Christmas and their elves.

They’ll also be handing out gifts to all the children on his good list.

Due to the popularity of Father Christmas and to avoid long waiting times, booking will be essential this year with a number of time slots available throughout the day.

Please note that one ticket permits one family or group to meet Santa – a separate ticket is not required for each child. Bookings will be made on a first come, first served basis.
