Fill your stocking with goodies on a special Christmas tour
It was always something of a tradition for children to hang up their stockings on Christmas Eve and hope Santa would fill them with goodies. Well, families in Staffordshire are being invited to get into the festive spirit by taking their stocking on a tour of Lichfield's historic city centre. A Christmas stocking tour has been launched by Visit Lichfield with the aim of revealing the history behind various popular Christmas festivities. Youngsters aged 5 - 11 years old, accompanied by an adult, are invited to join Visit Lichfield and explore local attractions and businesses around the city including the Samuel Johnson Birthplace Museum, The Kitchen Shop, and Erasmus Darwin House. At each stop, the children will receive traditional treats to fill their Christmas stocking.

The festive tours will run on Saturday 14 December at 2pm and Tuesday 24 December at 11am. Teresa Gilmore, Christmas stocking tour guide, said: "I will be leading the children around the city centre, collecting traditional stocking fillers like gingerbread men and candy canes. Once the stockings have been filled, we will warm up back at St Mary's with a hot drink and a Christmas story." Each tour, which lasts for 60 minutes, will cost 8 per person or 20 for a group ticket for three people, which must include at least one adult. People are asked to pop into Tourist Information in St Mary's, in Lichfield's Market Square, in person, or call the team on 01543 308924 to book their place.
