Christmas is coming and Dartford Borough Council will be spreading Christmas magic across the borough!

Local children will be treated to a visit from the white-bearded one arriving on a vintage fire engine and they’ll be able to meet Santa who promises a free Christmas gift for every child.

Visit for the complete list of places Father Christmas will be flying to with his reindeer and his sleigh!

A Dartford Borough Council spokesperson says, “We’re delighted that Santa has found time to take part in ‘Santa on Tour 2019’. He will be visiting even more communities this year, and we hope he will bring joy, happiness and Christmas sparkle everywhere he goes.” 

The 2019 tour will kick off on 15th December and visit 15 locations across Dartford before making its final stop on 23rd December. Find out more below:
