Christmas in Kettering
Christmas is coming to Kettering this year with a host of events planned in the town centre.
The fun kicks off on Thursday 24 November from 4pm with the Christmas light switch on and festive market, in Kettering's Market Place.
Santa's Lapland Lodge
Children can meet Santa Claus himself and his elves at his Lapland Lodge from the end of November.
Kettering Town Council and North Pole Productions are creating an enchanted forest that promises to be a magical treat for all the family.
Santa's Lapland Lodge is open from 10am to 4pm during weekends and school holidays, with tickets costing £7.
To book tickets call the grotto box office on 07432 441147.
12 Days of Christmas Free Trail
As well as the grotto, there will be a 12 Days of Christmas Trail around Kettering town centre, with trail sheets available from Kettering swimming pool. Youngsters have to find the 12 clues hidden in different shops and can claim a free treat at the end.
Kettering Town Council will also be holding Christmas Saturday markets from Saturday 26 November to Saturday 17 December, as well as a special market during the Christmas lights switch on, from 4pm on Thursday 24 November.
