Families will be able to meet Santa and his elves and have a go at Christmas crafts at a free event this weekend. 

A Santa Day is being held on Saturday, December 7, between 11am and 3pm, at the St Ives Visitor Centre.

There will be an open fire and marshmallow toasting, a chance to make your own Christmas decorations, and young visitors will receive a small gift from Father Christmas.

Mince pies and festive drinks will also be on offer.

The event is being organised by the Friends of St Ives Estate, along with the Get Out More forest school.
