The first of three Christmas Extravaganza weekends has taken place at Trevena Cross Nurseries at Breage to rave reviews.

It combined a Christmas market of 60 stalls, selling everything from crafts to food and drink, with visits to Santa's grotto.

While queuing to see Santa, visitors could take a walk through a snowy forest, encounter winter wonderland photo opportunities and enjoy live music and festive entertainment, including Oggy the talking owl, a chatty postbox, giant polar bear and huge snow globe photo.

Anyone who missed it still has four more chances to join in the fun, however, with the second Extravaganza weekend taking place this Saturday and Sunday, as well as both days the following weekend.

This year's £6 entry fee to see Santa goes to charities including The Invictus Trust and Cornwall Air Ambulance, along with other community cause in the Breage parish such as Christmas lunch sponsorship and Christmas hampers for elderly residents. Each visit includes a gift for every child.

Santa will also be working the twilight hours on Thursday evenings in December, in the run up to Christmas. Between 3pm and 8pm, he will take up residence in his grotto to welcome the pitter-patter of little feet.

Mulled wine and chestnuts will also be available on these nights to help grown-ups get in the festive spirit too.
