If you want to escape the bustle of the high street and indulge in a little retail therapy at the Marston Vale Forest Centre’s Winter Wonderland event, in Bedfordshire, then help yourself. You can solve gift worries and pick up a range of locally produced items, including pottery, goat’s milk toiletries and comfy knitwear. Some stonking Christmas trees will also be available to purchase.
Meanwhile, children can be kept entertained with fun pony rides and festive face painting.
