Santa's Grotto and Elf Workshop

Santa and elves sat in santas grotto

Join us for a festive visit to see Santa and his friendly elves!

Step into the Elf Workshop and take part in fun activities on your way to see Santa.

Firstly you will be given your very own elf hat that you can take home, you will create your own elf name and be given your list of tasks to complete.

Make your own reindeer food, create something magical in the craft activity, and then graduate the school and become an honorary elf!

You will be given your own lanyard to take home and you can have your photo taken in front of the graduation board.

Then it’s on to Santa’s home to see the big man himself where he will be waiting for you to hear what you would like for Christmas.

After you’ve taken photos with Santa he will present a age related wrapped gift before saying goodbye for another year.
