Weekend Picks: The Reindeers of Warwick

Hatton Adventure World, Warwick: every weekend until 24th December.

It's a busy time for all of those who help Santa as he prepares for the biggest day of his year later this week, and we mustn't forget his reindeer.

To give them a little rest before the big day they will be joining all the other animals down on the farm at Hatton Adventure World in Warwick, this weekend, and you can come and see them there too.

But it's not just Rudolph and Prancer, you can also visit the Guinea Pig Village, join in with some Christmas Caroling or take a ride at the fun fair.

Weekend Picks: Santa comes early to Buxton

Buxton Spring Shopping Centre: 17th & 24th December

It’s just over a week to go until the big day is upon us, but if your clan cannot wait that long to see what Santa has in store then why not take them along to Buxton this week and meet the man himself, a few days early.

Buxton and District Lions Club have asked Father Christmas nicely if he can come along and help support the many activities and projects they do to raise funds to help both individuals and organisations within the community, a visit to Santa will help these little helpers go a bit further this Christmas.

Prices start from £1.00 and there is parking on site, but there's only room for one sleigh!

Nottingham temporary closures over Christmas

Nottingham's Broad Street will be closed to traffic on key dates around Christmas and New Year to in a move which the council say will help provide a safe and exciting environment for citizens coming to the area.

Broad Street will be closed at its junction with Old Lenton Street and High Cross Street on Friday 16-Saturday 17 December, Friday 23 December and New Year’s Eve from 6pm – 4am.

Councillor Nick McDonald, Portfolio Holder for Business, Growth and Transport, said:

“The area around Broad Street and Carlton Street has grown in popularity thanks to the cafes, bars and restaurants in the area.Christmas should see even more people come to celebrate in the city and this closure means we can keep these visitors safe in an open and vibrant environment, allowing them to enjoy the festivities and visit some of these places, many of them small, local or independent businesses offering something different.”
