Romford Market will be transformed into a magical winter forest for an immersive experience inspired by the world of CS Lewis.

The Narnia Experience, commissioned by Havering Council, is hosted by Artless, a Havering-based theatre company and Christian charity with a mission to inspire children and young people through performance and creativity.

It is one of several festive activities planned for the market, which will also be extending its trading hours in the run-up to Christmas.

A free wrapping station will be available outside Debenhams from December 20 to Christmas Eve and Santa will have his own post box in the middle of the market from December 13 to 18.

Children posting a letter to Father Christmas will receive a personalised reply.

"I hope that with these extended trading hours and lots of free entertainment everyone comes along to show their support for our market and really get into the spirit.

"From festive music to the magical experience of Narnia, Romford Market has it all this Christmas, and I encourage everybody to come along and celebrate this wonderful time of year."

There will also be entertainment in the Market Place from Saturday, December 14 until Christmas Eve, including a free mini funfair with a ferris wheel, a fun castle, teacups, chair o'plane, train ride and crazy car ride.

Santa's reindeer will be paying a visit to the market on December 21 between 11am and 3pm.
