CHILDREN can enjoy listening to a story told by Father Christmas in a Basingstoke museum.

Hampshire Cultural Trust, which runs Milestones Museum, in Basingstoke, is offering families the chance to join Father Christmas to hear The Story of Christmas, read in a beautifully decorated room inside the venue.

Household groups will be seated together in their bubbles to enjoy the magical family story, and afterwards children will be given a gift from a winter sleigh, with the help of the Milestones’ elves.

Sessions last 30 minutes, beginning at 10.30, 11.30, 12.30, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm, with places limited to 20 per session.

Pre-booking is essential and children must be accompanied by an adult, with household size limited to six people.

Tickets also include entry into the museum.
