Breakfast with Father Christmas in Chichester

CHILDREN are being invited to join Father Christmas for breakfast or tea this month.

Father Christmas will be hosting breakfast and tea parties at Chichester Garden Centre until December 23.

Michael Edmondson, manager of the garden centre, in Bognor Road, said: “Having breakfast or tea with Father Christmas has become a delightful tradition here at Chichester.

“The families who come along year after year have a marvellous time and enjoy the magical and charming festive setting. Father Christmas and his elves welcome the little ones, chat, sing songs, hand out gifts and share a very special breakfast or tea.”

Tickets for breakfast or tea with Father Christmas cost £8.95. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Included in the price of the tea or breakfast is a gift for each child, the opportunity to decorate a gingerbread biscuit, a colouring-in activity sheet and a satsuma.

Michael added: “Tickets have always been really popular so this year families are also able to book online, as well as coming into the centre.

“Having Father Christmas here in our garden centre attracts both the young and old so we would encourage early booking.”
