St Peter's car park off Wulfruna Street, behind the Civic Centre, will be transformed to provide a host of entertainment for all the family, from 12pm up to kick off at 4pm.

There will be face painting, the chance to have your photo taken with the Championship trophy and Wolves mascots Wolfie and Wendy, as well as penalty shoot outs, free fairground rides and a Wolves Santa's grotto.

There will also be street food, a bar, undercover seating, music provided by the Signal 107 roadshow, the chance to watch Villa take on Blues in the derby (kick off 12pm) on the big screen.

Access to the park will be granted on a first come, first served basis.

Councillor John Reynolds, City of Wolverhampton Council Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: "The summer fan parks were a big hit and we are delighted to have teamed up with the club again to put this family event on ahead of the game with Huddersfield.

"I would urge people to also make the most of the city centre before heading to the fan park for the big game build up to what will hopefully be a Wolves win."

The summer fan parks held on the Civic Centre piazza ahead of the games with Villarreal and Everton were attended by hundreds of people.

Wolves Head of Marketing, Russell Jones, added: "The fan park follows the Christmas Lights switch on the day before and the city will be full of festive spirit.

"The fan park is another great way for the Wolves family to come together as we build up the excitement to our Barclays Premier League fixture with Huddersfield."

This is just one of a host of family friendly events taking place in the city in the countdown to Christmas. Discover more events, activities, special offers, late night shopping hours and parking offers at Type=links;Linkid=6522;Title=Enjoy Wolverhampton;Target=_blank;.
