Tong launches its biggest ever Christmas weekend event
Tong Garden Centre will mark the opening of Santa's grotto and its new Christmas Cabin with a two-day event which begins on Saturday November 18.
The team at Tong are celebrating the festive family fun weekend with a reduced price of £10 for the 30 minute magical journey through Santa's grotto together with a packed schedule of activities for families to enjoy, from festive entertainers and photo opportunities to face painting and food in the cabin.
Festive entertainers will be on hand from 11am on both Saturday and Sunday to engage visitors with Snow Queen sing-a-longs, Christmas cracker joke contests, quizzes and festive face painting.
The new for 2017 Christmas Cabin features free shows from Rudy the talking Reindeer, photo opportunities in the Snow Globe and Giant Festive Baubles and donkey rides in support of the Cellar Trust.
The team are anticipating a busy weekend thanks to the packed programme of activities and events, Marketing Manager Jo Dales said.
"We're delighted to invite families to help us celebrate the opening of the grotto and our special Christmas Cabin, which will be open right up to Christmas Eve.
"In addition to the special festive family fun weekend grotto price of £10, all of the children's grotto tickets will be entered into a prize draw to win a special Festive Afternoon Tea for Two in a restaurant - a nice treat for the grown-ups!
"This weekend is just the start of Tong's magical journey through November and December that includes Festive Tasting events in the Food Hall every weekend until Christmas."
Hot food, snacks and drinks will be available in the Christmas Cabin and the Restaurant throughout the weekend.
