Visitors to Moss Bank Park will be able to board the Santa Express miniature railway this Christmas.

From Saturday, December 17 until Thursday, December 22, visitors will be able to go for a ride to visit Santa as he finishes making presents in his Toyland workshop.

Once the train has returned to the station, children can enjoy the rides on the fairground and join in making Christmas cards.

Meanwhile, parents can sample traditional treats such as free mince pies, hot chestnuts and refreshments, while entertainment will be provided by street artists and live Christmas carols from a brass trio.

Bolton Council’s, Executive Member for Cleaner, Greener, Safer, Councillor Elaine Sherrington, said: “With Christmas just around the corner, a ride to see Santa making presents is a magical experience for young children.

“There will be plenty on offer for adults as well at the park, and I’d encourage anyone who wants to get in the festive spirit to come along.”

The event has been organised by Bolton Council in conjunction with SJK Leisure, and will be open from noon until 8pm on Saturday and Sunday and from noon until xxx from Monday until Thursday.

A charge of £4 will apply for the train journey with one accompanying adult riding free, additional adult tickets cost £2.50.
