Guests can enjoy decorating Christmas cookies with sponsors Barnsley Norse, kickstart their Christmas shopping at the craft stalls, join the elves in their workshop....and much, much more.

As well as Santa, guests can also meet local councillors who will be available to answer questions about their role. and life as a councillor. The Mayor of Barnsley, Cllr Green is also looking forward to welcoming guests and will be inviting children to try on his iconic robe and chains.
