A Sense Of Christmas

Friday 6th December – Tuesday 24th December

Do have a sense that something exciting is just around the corner? Churchill Square’s grotto this year is filled with unique sounds, sights, smells and tastes of the Festive Season ready to be experienced.

Our expert Elves (who have flown in from the North Pole especially for this event) will welcome Santa’s little helpers before leading them to the Reindeer Stables and then onto a taste of Christmas in Mrs Claus’ kitchen. There’ll be sensory treats and excitement around every corner, not to mention a one-on-one meeting with the big man himself!
