A PARK in Leigh will be holding its first Christmas markets event this weekend.

Visitors can go to Pennington Hall Park on St Helens Road on Saturday and Sunday between 11am and 4pm both days where a host of crafting stalls and small businesses will be set up.

A Santa's grotto will be stationed at the event and a tombola will also be held.

Donations made at the Santa's grotto will be handed to charity My Life, which has a base at Leigh Sports Village.

Tickets are on sale at the park's Caffeina Cafe which are priced at £5 and include a gift and treat.
