Children can have their Christmas wishes answered by meeting Santa in his grotto on Saturday.

Father Christmas will be visiting Essex Police Museum in Chelmsford from 10am to 4pm.

There is no need to book and children of all ages are welcome. Santa will then give each child a sparkly snow globe to decorate, colour in, and fill with water.

Curator, Becky Wash says "We’re very excited Santa is stopping at Essex Police headquarters.

"The museum offers families the chance to meet Santa without the long queues and there's a lot to do while you wait including dressing up, fingerprinting and colouring in.

"A perfect opportunity to keep young children entertained in the run up to Christmas!”
