Children will be able to meet Father Christmas and his elves and get a small present and there will be Christmas crafts and writing letters to Father Christmas.

You can also try your hand at decorating gingerbread.

A spokesperson for the hospice said: “The Secret Present room - our most popular attraction from last year - will also return. This will give all attending children a chance to pick and wrap a present for a special adult in their life, giving that person a gift they didn’t expect.

“In addition to the free activities above you can also enjoy a raffle, tombola, festive refreshments, face painting, Hospice Retail stall and a collection of Christmas stalls for an extra cost.”
