Keep Santa safe this Christmas

2021 has been a funny old year. And whilst things have started to get back to normal COVID is still very much in our midsts.

To make sure everyone stays safe this Christmas, we’ll be restricting the number of adults to 2 per grotto visit this year. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this causes but the safety of our customers (and Santa of course) is our top priority!

To keep Santa safe this year, we’re limiting numbers to 2 x adults per child per visit. As usual, the grotto is FREE, however if you can spare any change we will be collecting donations for St Luke’s Hospice.
