He's making a list, he's checking it twice...we're delighted that Santa has chosen to visit Frome for the best lantern parade in the West, and Frome's Christmas lights switch on!

Parade your beautiful lantern through the town then pop in to tell the big man what you're hoping to find under the tree on Christmas Day.

Book a half-hour time slot between 4.30 and 7.30 for up to four children to visit Santa in his grotto. The grotto costs just £3 per child, with a gift and a sweet treat.

You'll find Santa and his elves in a grotto on the ground floor of the WHY office, 14-15 North Parade, BA11 1AU (opposite Frome Museum)

No payment required on booking: pay £3 per child by cash or card on the day

The money raised at the grotto supports WHY's vital emotional support services for children, young people and adults who have been affected or bereaved by cancer and life-threatening conditions.
