Trevena Cross at Breage claims to have Cornwall’s largest Father Christmas charity grotto and free Christmas festival which opens on Saturday, December 2.

Father Christmas will be there working hard for charity on Saturday and Sunday (December 2-3) and on December 9 and 10; 16 and 17, plus late night Thursday, between 3pm and 8pm, on December 7, 14, 21.

"We’re proud to have hand-built Cornwall’s largest charity fundraising grotto at Trevena Cross with all money raised going to charity," said a spokesman. "Last year 2,500 children visited our grotto. This year we’ve doubled the size of it."

This year the money raised will go to the Children's Hospice SW and the Invictus Trust, which is opening Cornwall’s first centre for teenagers with mental health issues.
