The celebrations will be on and around the bandstand, near the Shepherds Road entrance to the historic beauty spot – not far from The Cha Café. This fantastic, free event from Watford Borough Council is organised as part of the £6.6m regeneration of the park – which was once the seat of the Earls of Essex.
Cllr Karen Collett, whose portfolio includes overseeing the council’s community events, said: “I love Christmas, and I also love Cassiobury Park. I’m overjoyed that Santa has agreed to come and visit us. This is a great opportunity for children to visit him in person and deliver letters explaining what they would like to receive for Christmas. We want to do everything we can to encourage people in Watford to enjoy our town’s biggest beauty shot.”
There will be music from Watford’s Rock Chorus, festive songs from the Holywell School choir, and seasonal activities from just £1 per child. Plus, you can bring your Christmas letters to give to Santa Claus in person.
The Cassiobury Park regeneration project is funded by Watford Borough Council, the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund. Free and low cost activities are provided at the park all year round as part of the project, and you can find out more at watford.gov.uk/cassioburyevents
