Santa in the Sitwell Library at Woodend

.Christmas on the Crescent, over the weekend of Saturday December 7 and Sunday December 8, will include Santa in the Sitwell – Father Christmas in residence in the beautiful wood-and-glass-lined library at the Grade-II listed Woodend, the former home of the Sitwell family.

At 10am and 1pm on both days, Santa will welcome young visitors for a two-hour festive experience. He’ll read a seasonal story, and each child will receive a traditional Victorian-style toy and a small chocolate gift. Parents will have the opportunity to take their children’s photo before families take part in a craft workshop create their own Victorian Christmas card.

On the same days, the conservatory at Woodend will host a festive local makers’ market from 10am to 4pm, including Christmassy treats and entertainment alongside unique arts, crafts and gifts from local artists and makers.

Entry to Woodend is free; Santa in the Sitwell is £10 per child (one supporting adult goes free, £2.50 for an additional adult).

Visitors will also enjoy free entry to Scarborough Art Gallery throughout the weekend.
