Meet Father Christmas (We're sorry, this event is now sold out)
Pre-booking is essential
Father Christmas is stopping at Newark Park before he heads off for his busiest night of the year. For those that have been nice, there will be a little gift and a chat with the man himself in his cosy grotto in the Drawing Room on the ground floor of Newark house.
Tickets cost £6 per child.
Please visit the 'Things to see and do' page for further information and to book your place.
