See Santa’s reindeer, watch a Christmas puppet show and party with Frozen’s Anna, Elsa and Olaf at Anglia Ruskin University’s Chelmsford campus. 

Anglia Ruskin is welcoming the public to the free event, which will take place on Saturday, 3 December from 10am until 2pm.

There will be free activities for all the family to enjoy, from Christmas biscuit decorating, to arts and crafts. Special guests will be some real reindeer and also characters from Frozen to entertain youngsters.

There will also be face painting, three puppet shows, a photobooth with free photos, and refreshments including free popcorn and chestnuts.

Rachel Moss, Public Engagement Officer for Anglia Ruskin University, said: 

“Christmas is coming so why not come along to our free family event to get into the spirit of the season? 

“We’re delighted to be joined by Santa’s reindeer and there’s plenty for all ages to enjoy. We look forward to welcoming lots of people onto campus.”

The event will run alongside one of Anglia Ruskin’s open days, where prospective students can come and find out more about studying at the university.
