Santa’s Grotto at The Swan

A brand-new Santa’s Grotto is coming to the centre on Saturday 23 November, arriving just as the festive season gets into full swing!

Children will be able to make their Christmas wishes come true, as they are led into the enchanting Grotto complete with a festive character garden for an unforgettable one to one meeting with Santa Claus to tell him what’s on their list this year.

To celebrate the Grotto’s Opening there will be free festive events taking place throughout its opening weekend. One Saturday 23 November (11am-4pm) there’s an extra special visit from Santa’s Reindeer in partnership with The Phoenix Children’s Foundation, who will also receive a donation from the proceeds of this year’s grotto.

On Sunday 24 November (11am-4pm) there’s a whole day of free festive fun with Christmas Face Painting and Letter Writing to Santa Workshops. It’s the perfect chance for children to write those all-important Christmas lists before telling Santa what they’d like to find under the tree this year!

A visit to Santa’s Grotto at The Swan Shopping Centre costs £6.50 including an age appropriate gift and it’s £2.50 for a printed photo to take home and treasure a magical festive memory!

Santa’s Grotto at The Swan Shopping Centre will open on Saturday 23rd November 2019 from 11am to 5pm.
