Visit Father Christmas as he relaxes in his Dickensian home at Wakefield Museum.

When you arrive, you’ll be issued with a ticket, so there’s no time for little ones to get bored queuing! Kids can try out 19th century-inspired craft activities, and be thrilled by a Victorian street magician, all for free while they wait. Then when their ticket number is called, children will step into the museum’s 1800s front room and receive a Victorian-themed gift from Father Christmas.

Plus, those who are there on the day will be in with a chance to win a Quentin Blake-illustrated copy of A Christmas Carol.
