Father Christmas will land at Weston’s Helicopter Museum this weekend for a family fun day.

Santa Claus and his crew of dancing elves will touch down at the museum, in Locking Moor Road, at around 11am on Sunday.

They will be joined by Disney princesses including Frozen’s Elsa and Anna, and Princess Belle and the Beast.

Children will be able to meet Santa himself, have a peek inside his helicopter grotto and test out their piloting skills on a winter weather flight simulator.

A museum spokesman said: “All children are allowed free entry to the museum on the day.

“Santa is scheduled to land at 11am, dependent on weather both here and at the North Pole, and he is really looking forward to greeting all the children from the local area.”

Other attractions include The Dolly Mix Dance Company which will perform a festive routine as well as stalls and games.
