“Santa Claus is Coming to Otford…”

Ho, Ho, Ho! Santa Claus has been busy packing his sleigh and feeding his reindeer in preparation for his special visit to Otford’s Christmas Fayre on Saturday November 19th.  His enchanted elves will be ready to welcome you to Santa’s Grotto from 10 am inside the atmospheric ruins of Otford Palace, and Men in Sheds have been busy building him a new sleigh. To make the children’s time with Santa even more special, he has a gift for them to take home. Booking is essential if you’d like your child to visit Santa as part of this wonderful celebration of Christmas in our village. Tickets to secure a slot for your family cost £6 and include one child and accompanying adult(s). You can book yours here, but hurry as places are strictly limited: Note that additional children in the family will be charged for at £5 each, payable on the day.

There will be lots more for families to enjoy on what promises to be a wonderful day out, including a World Cup shoot out on the Recreation Ground, face painting, Christmas biscuit decorating and card making, throwing a ball at the reindeer, and craft activities in the Memorial Hall and the Library. And Silly Billy the goat will be wandering around entertaining visitors! We look forward to welcoming you all.

Do follow us on social media @otfordsociety for lots more about what promises to be an amazing day. The High Street (which will be partially closed) will be filled with stalls selling an array of gifts. There will be crafts, local fine artists, children’s toys & activities, upcycled furniture, books, cards, eco gifts & much more! And our wonderful village food and drink outlets will be serving scrumptious seasonal treats, hot and cold drinks and tasty regular menus.
