“Our festive event included seeing Father Christmas, but there was also craft stalls, models and street organ music,” said a spokesperson. 

“Our big museum engines also run throughout the day, and hot and cold food was available for visitors to purchase and enjoy.” 

Taking to social media, one craft stall holder said: “I was thrilled to be back with my hand sewn floral hair accessories, home grown and dried potpourri and decoupage lanterns.
