Father Christmas at Hamleys
Time Out says
Considering the utterly vast array of toys that Hamley's has to offer it's no wonder that Father Christmas has decided to set up shop there for the festive season – he's probably on the lookout for new gift ideas. From November 24 until Christmas Eve, excitable kids have another reason to visit: Father Christmas will be making an appearance. Those crafty Hamleys Elves have cooked up enough games and activities to fill a 45 minute slot, including writing and posting a Christmas wish list to the North Pole – and sweet treats will be on hand to maintain soaring blood-sugar levels. Tickets cost £39.95, and bookings must be made in advance.
