With a dash of magic and a sprinkle of Christmas cheer, Father Christmas arrived at Hillier Horsham on Saturday 6 December.
Father Christmas and his helpful Elf arrived at the beautiful grotto at the garden centre on Brighton Road on Saturday, ready to greet children.
As part of the Christmas fun to welcome Santa, a choir from Kingslea School in Horsham came to sing carols to shoppers. The Wugly Sisters from The Capitol pantomime, Cinderella, popped in for a guest appearance – causing havoc in Café Rowan and the garden centre.
The grotto will be open every weekend from 10am until 4pm on Saturdays and 10.30am-3pm on Sundays, as well as on Monday 22 December from 10am until 4pm. Children who visit Father Christmas will also receive a gift. Entry is only £4 per child.
