Breakfast with Santa

When: Thursday 23rd December

Where: Woolston Manor, Chigwell

 There's no better warm-up for that big day than to spend a morning being served by Santa's helpers! With this delicious breakfast also comes a choice of pancakes, muffins, fruit salad and hot drinks. But the main event is revealed afterwards when Santa himself will be making a special appearance. You can have a chat with him just before his busiest schedule of the year begins.
