ONGAR LIGHTS TURN-ON

Join us and the whole of Ongar as the Christmas lights are switched on in the village, with special guests Georgia K, from 'The Only Way Is Essex', and Moni Tivony from BBC's 'The Voice.'  There'll be street entertainment, and shops open late. In addition, we'll be operating a service in the afternoon and evening to transport the residents of North Weald to and from the festivities. Perhaps there'll even be an appearance from Santa Claus?

More details coming soon.

Having enjoyed his previous visits, Father Christmas is returning to the EOR this December to help spread festive cheer. Departing North Weald, Santa will travel through the train and present all the good boys and girls with their very own gift. Good mums and dads get a free mince pie and a glass of mulled wine too.

Advanced booking is essential. For more information and booking, please visit our dedicated Santa Specials page.
