CHRISTMAS is coming... and here's where you can see Santa as he visits his grottoes in Herefordshire.

Oakchurch Farm Shop

Santa arrived at Oakchurch, along the Brecon Road, on Saturday, November 19.

Oakchurch is working with the Hereford Lions Club.

Santa's grotto will be open every Saturday and Sunday until December 18.

It will also be open weekday afternoons from 1pm to 4pm during the week before Christmas until Friday, December 23.


For social distancing safety purposes, meeting Santa is strictly by appointment only.

Entry is free but the shop will ask people for a refundable payment of £5 for the whole family to confirm a booking. Call 01981 500125.

Each child will be given a gift to take home.

Snowman and his friend will also be there to greet in the centre's enchanted surrounding of Christmas trees.

St Michael's Hospice

St Michael's Hospice's Santa experience is back with more lights and surpises along its path to the grotto.

It began on December 3 and is open through the month in the run-up to Christmas until December 18.
