Tor said: “Christmas is all about spending time with loved ones and making precious memories together as a family.

"We’ve put our heart and soul into planning another special Christmas here, creating experiences to remember and making sure there’s so much to do that you can be here all day.

"We can’t wait for Father Christmas to arrive and to welcome more families this December.”

For the first time, William’s Den will also host a SEND (Special Education Needs & Disability) relaxed performance of its Christmas Show on Saturday, December 2 at 2.30pm. It will be the same as other performances but with lower sensory intensity for visitors who would benefit from a more informal environment and are free to move around during the show. The relaxed performance also includes a British Sign Language Interpreter.

As well as the six show performances each day, helped by Mother Christmas and the elves, every child who visits can pick an early Christmas present from the Toy Shop to take home. And, back by popular demand, families can join Bauble our French Baker to decorate a festive gingerbread, toast marshmallows around the firepit, tackle the reindeer quiz trail and enjoy unlimited play inside and outside at William’s Den.
