RIVER Bourne Community Farm is doing something a bit different for Christmas this year and hosting a Gingerbread Festival.

The festival is taking place in the big barn and continues this weekend (Saturday, December 14 and Sunday 15).

It is the first year the farm has held the event. 

There is a chance to visit the gingerbread fairy and take part in workshops as well as have your photograph taken on the vintage tractor.

Visitors can also go on the hunt for gingerbread elves on the farmyard trail.

There is even mulled wine for the grown-ups too.

A spokesperson for River Bourne Community Farm said: "The first two weekends have been really popular and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it."

The festival is suitable for ages two to 13.

Limited drop-in tickets are available for December 21 and 22.

River Bourne Community Farm is located on Cow Lane in Laverstock.
