Description

Add a little magic to the festive season with a visit to see Santa Claus, at CastleCourt Shopping Centre.

Located on our first floor (opposite the food court), you can find Santa and his busy elves in the Winter Wonderland grotto, ready to meet and greet the children with joy!

They are working around the clock to check who’s on the nice list, welcoming children from the 20th November to the 24th December. Visits are charged at £6.50 per child, to include your grotto visit and an age appropriate gift.

Santa’s arrival will commence with a spectacular Santa Parade at 12pm on 20th November, starting at Writer’s Square and coming down to CastleCourt front doors on Royal Avenue.

 

Please note: Photographs with Santa can be purchased separately at the grotto, during your visit.

The grotto will be fogged at regular intervals to keep staff and customers safe. The booking system is in place to alleviate queues as each customer will have their own individual booking slot.

Parents can indicate if they have a child with additional needs on the booking form. You are advised to book a morning slot between 11am and 12pm if you have a child with additional needs, as this is when the music volume will be lowered for quiet hour.
