SANTA is coming to the woods at Langdon Hills Country Park, Westley Heights again this year.
The Thurrock Council-run park will be hosting its annual and popular ticket-only Santa in the Woods event on the weekends of 7 and 8, and 14 and 15 December.
The theme this year is Wind in the Willows, so come and join Toad and his friends for a wintry woodland walk in search of Santa.
The ticket price is £12 per child and the accompanying adult goes free. Included in the price is a present for each child and hot refreshments served after the walk.
Small groups of families will be called to see Santa in booking order so there will be no need to queue giving everyone a chance to buy or make Christmas presents and decorations.
Tickets go on sale on Tuesday, 15 October through the Thameside Theatre, booking office. You can buy online (www.thurrock.gov.uk/theatre/), in person or over the phone (0845 300 5264).
