Event Notes

Santa's Grotto

16 November until 24 December 2017

Santa’s setting up home this year in his beautiful new grotto at Manchester Arndale!

He’ll be warming his boots by the fire in his magical Lapland retreat from 16th November, waiting to see your little ones. Start your journey in the snow-covered garden of Santa’s Scandinavian log cabin, where you’ll be greeted by the Lapland Elves before taking your Christmas wish list to the main man.

Find Santa in his new location on the upper mall near Argos, and be sure to book in advance. Tickets are available for just £5.50 (plus booking fee), which includes an exclusive festive Teddy Bear.
