Write your letter to Santa at the Lincolnshire Food & Gift Fair 11 Nov

Brand new for 2016, we're launching Santa's Workshop upstairs in the Epic Centre. With all of our little visitors in mind, we'll have hands-on crafts and activities, including Christmas storytelling and festive baking - and even meet Father Christmas himself!

We want to make sure everybody gets the chance to write their letter to Santa, and thanks to Ruddocks of Lincoln we'll even have a special post box to send them directly! If you can't wait until then, you can download a template to start writing your letters now and bring them with you to post on 26 - 27 November in Santa's Workshop.

With Ruddocks of Lincoln, you can also personalise your Christmas tree with handmade tree toppers and decorations, and make your very own festive crowns. Find out more about what's on in Santa's Workshop here.
