The grotto is at Cliffe Castle on the weekends of December 9/10 and 16/17, between 11.30am-4pm.

Tickets can be obtained, priced £10, at keighleylions.org.uk/shop/p/santas-grotto-ticket-cliffe-castle

"Santa's grotto is a tradition for Keighley Lions, and this year we're going bigger than ever.

"We've nothing but thanks for Cliffe Castle and its team for helping us hold this grotto in such a beautiful setting."
