The magic of the North Pole is coming to Leighton Buzzard, as Santa’s sleigh has dusted off its snow, and is set to take to the streets this winter.

On Friday the float will be outside Dillamore’s Furnishers to celebrate ‘Lighting the High Street’, where at 6.15pm the sleigh will light up with Santa making an appearance.

His little helpers will also be giving out sweets to good girls and boys.

Father Christmas’s next adventures will then be on Sunday, December 3, when he will be visiting the Clarence Road area between 5pm and 7.30pm (weekend times) and on Monday, December 4, when he will be visiting the Cotefield Drive area between 6pm and 8pm (weekday times).

He will have his post box on his sleigh so your little ones can give him their Christmas wish lists for his elves.

When Christmas Eve arrives the merry man will joining the town at 7.30pm (carols start at 7pm), while he is also planning to visit shoppers on Saturday 16 at Morrisons, Lake Street, and Saturday 23 at Tesco, Vimy Road (daytimes).
