A HISTORIC house will be transformed into a winter wonderland for a Christmas Fair.

Merchistoun Hall, in Portsmouth Road, Horndean, is pulling out all the stops for the fair, with yuletide attractions for all the family.

The event, organised by Horndean Community Association, takes place on Saturday, December 7 from 10am to 4pm.

Santa will be in his grotto for children to visit and there will be a grand draw, hamper raffle, guess the weight of the cake competition and a treasure hunt.

Entertainment will be provided by Spirit of the South Ladies Choral Singers.

Admission is free and all are welcome.
