Museum trustee Keith Moyes said: “After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, our Christmas Craft and Gift Fair offers people the chance to shop local and support small businesses with their Christmas shopping.

“They will also find handmade and unusual crafts and gifts that they simply wouldn’t find on the high street or online.

“The event offers the chance for families to have a look around the museum at the same time as enjoying the craft event.

“Plus, we will have out Tiggi Tiger Cub Family Activity Packs available for families to enjoy – helping to keep the little ones, and big ones, entertained.”

The event runs from 10am to 4pm.

Emma’s Coffee House will be open to provide food and drink.

Entrance to the museum and the Christmas Craft and Gift Fair is just £2 for adults and 50p for children.

Of course, no Christmas event would be complete without a visit to see Father Christmas.

Children can meet Santa in his grotto.

This is pre-bookable via Emma’s Coffee House at the museum and is priced at £5 per child.
