Pssst! Father Christmas is coming to Ramsgate!
SAVE THE DATE for your littilies!
Word has it that Father Christmas himself will be arriving in a fiery red fire engine on Sunday mid-morning on the 23rd of December in Ramsgate. He will be travelling from Nathalie’s Shell Shop through the middle of Ramsgate Village, right through to Chefs on Marine. He and his entourage will then turn around and come back up to the southern parking area at the Tidal pool in Ramsgate.
