Father Christmas lands at Norwich Aviation Museum!
Saturday 15th December 2018

The City of Norwich Aviation Museum plans to host Santa Claus in their 'Nimrod Grotto' between 10am and 4pm allowing young children the chance to tell Santa there Christmas wishes whilst receiving a small Christmas gift.

The museum's very own Vulcan Bomber will be also open for guided tours along with its Hawker Hunter cockpit for flight simulator sessions and a Jaguar cockpit section for the aspiring Jet Fighter Pilot or budding enthusiast!

After exploring the Museum; why not pop into the Friendship Tea Room which will be serving light refreshments throughout the day and also have a go on the Christmas Tombola, suitable for all ages!

All money raised will go towards the Museum's development fund, which supports the maintenance of exhibits and allows the museum to develop future projects such as making the site more accessible plus a much needed hanger to house some of our prized aircraft.
