Get ready because Santa is coming to town.

Santa’s sleigh aims to visit virtually every road in Kenilworth over a three-week period in December as part of an annual programme coordinated by the Kenilworth Round Table.

Santa his sleigh will kick-off the Christmas season with a visit to both Kenilworth light switch-on events – in the ‘Old Town’ and Warwick Road - this weekend.

A spokesperson for the Kenilworth Round Table said: "First and foremost, it’s simply a bit of fun and designed to bring some early Christmas cheer. And it’s not only popular with the kids either – there are some rather 'big kids' out there who seem to enjoy it just as much."

Donations are also collected by organisers as Santa makes his rounds, which helps fund the Kenilworth Round Table Senior Citizens Party.

Kenilworth Round Table thanks Listers Honda Coventry for providing the car to pull Santa’s sleigh.
