BBC Countryfile is debuting its Christmas in the Park in Wiltshire.

It will take up residency across five acres of the Charlton Park Estate near Malmesbury from December 10 to 12. All centred around the arboretum, which will be home to a special festive tented village – with the Countryfile presenters as the hosts.

There will presenter-led stage shows, TV chefs and local food heroes creating seasonal favourites, Christmas crafting and baking workshops, winter woodland walks, live bands, street food, carol singing and shopping with more than 200 retailers.

Visitors can even pick their own locally grown Charlton Park Christmas tree, in the Great Christmas Tree Sale.

The presenters of Countryfile will be present across the weekend hosting various stage talks and activities at the BBC Countryfile at Christmas Stage.

Food lovers can enjoy The Christmas Kitchen, hosted by Brian Turner and featuring some of the nation's favourite chefs.

Join The Woodland Trust on a series of expert-guided walks around Charlton Park’s arboretum, where they can learn about the various flora and fauna, as well as how to tend their own gardens over the winter months.

For children, there will be festive workshops, including making your own reindeer from hazel sticks.

The Carol-Oke stage will host local choirs and Countryfile presenters will be performing all of the festive favourites to sing along to.

And an array of street food and mulled wine and other festive delicacies will be available from the Park Food Market and Wine Bar.

Tickets for BBC Countryfile Christmas in the Park start at £29.50 for adults and £15 for children aged 5-16 and can be purchased by visiting:
