UpCountry Garden Centre will be holding its festive celebration on Saturday, November 30 and Sunday, December 1.

The Scaynes Hill centre will feature a display of Christmas trees, decorations, and lights, as well as Santa’s magical train.

Visitors can take a ride on the train as well a range of other fun festive activities.

The weekend is set to offer festive food tastings, Christmas choir and a visit from Santa Claus, who will be handing out Christmas presents from 11am to 3pm on both days.

All funds raised by the festive activities will be going to Chailey Heritage School, which helps children with complex learning disabilities.

Jason Payne, garden centre manager, said: “Christmas is an amazing time, especially for our younger visitors, and as big kids ourselves we’ve had great fun building our best Christmas experience ever.

“We can’t wait to welcome all our visitors aboard Santa’s Festive Express.”

The UpCountry festive display and train is open seven days a week right up until Christmas.
