Yes, once again Father Christmas will be leaving his sleigh to set sail on our canal boat Centaur for some festive fun on selected dates this December here at the National Waterways Museum, Ellesmere Port:
At these times each day on the 17 December: 11.00am, 12.45pm and 2.30pm

Stories, songs and silliness

Then Father Christmas will lead the way to his beautiful Grotto, where there will be storytelling, plus a gift for every child to bring an enchanting start to Christmas.

Meanwhile, mum and dad can relax with a tea or coffee - and all important mince pie - along with juice and biscuits for the children.
