A PUPPET is encouraging people to get into the festive spirit as they visit Santa’s workshop this weekend.

The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre is hosting the Clumsiest Elf panto where youngsters will hear the tale of Effie Brightbuttons.

Families will also get a chance to meet the elves, hear stories and sing songs before joining some of Santa’s elves in a workshop where they will make their own wooden Christmas decoration.

There are two sessions available to book on the Northumberland National Park Authority website, at 11am and 1.30pm, both taking place on Sunday.
