Museum curator Elie Hughes said: “Every child visiting Santa will receive a present and there will also be the chance for them to enjoy some traditional Christmas crafts like making cards and paper chains.

“It promises to be a fun day for the whole family. Parents, and grandparents, will find stocking fillers for all ages in our museum shop and there will be a tombola, a second-hand book stall and refreshments,” added Elie.

Entry to Ely Museum on the day will be free for everyone. There will be a charge of £3 for children wishing to visit Father Christmas who will be in his parlour from 10.30am-12.30pm and from 1pm-3pm.

City Cycle Centre of Ely are again sponsoring the event, which has also attracted sponsorship from MHH Partnership Ltd, chartered accountants and tax advisers, who have offices in Soham and Cottenham.

In the run-up to Christmas, Ely Museum is open from 10.30am-4pm Monday, Wednesday-Saturday and from 1pm-4pm on Sundays. The Museum will be closed on December 25, 26 and 27 and on January 1. For further details tel. 01353 666655.
