HE IS a busy man at this time of year – but even Santa still needs a hearty breakfast.
Instead of mince pies and sherry, he will be flying in for a festive fry-up and a cup of tea at Blakemere Craft Centre to keep himself filled up as he prepares for Christmas Eve.
Santa and his head elf Jolly Twinkle Toes will be stopping by the Coach House Restaurant at the Sandiway centre on Sunday to tuck into breakfast followed by storytelling with children around the Christmas tree.
Children will receive a small gift from Santa before he returns to his Christmas Cottage grotto in Blakemere’s Christmas square.
Centre manager Ginny Brooks-White said: “This is something a little different and will be a magical experience for children.
“There will be tea, toast, tinsel and plenty of Christmas cheer to warm even the coldest of winter mornings.”
Blakemere’s Christmas square is now open with festive treats and crafts.
And, as part of the celebrations, the centre is opening on Boxing Day for the first time in 16 years.
Cheshire Falconry, based at Cheshire Waterlife on the site, will be performing a bird of prey flying display and there will be the chance to warm up afterwards in the Coach House with mulled wine, mince pies and treats for the kids.
The Coach House will be serving meals and many of the shops will be open for Boxing Day bargains.
The Christmas Square and Santa’s grotto will be from 11am until 4pm on Sunday.
