Santa's Grotto

Santa’s Grotto 2022!

Santa and Mrs Claus are busy preparing for this year’s magical Grotto Experience at The Olde Watermill Shopping Village with    a longer 50 minute experience and some more exciting changes!
Meet Santa’s head elves Elfie Selfie and Jingle Bells in their busy Toy Workshop for some sing along fun to get into the Christmas spirit before you decorate your very own wooden Elf to take home.
Elfie Selfie will then take you through to meet Drifter the Snowy Elf in his Winter Woodland who will show you how to send your very own secret wishes to Santa and also make some magic, sparkly Reindeer food. Enjoy jokes and antics with Percy the Polar Bear and each child will receive a unique Santa’s Christmas Passport filled with lots of ideas and things to do.
Then, Ho! Ho! Ho! it’s time for an audience with Santa and Mrs Claus in their cosy festive sitting room. What more can we say!
You will have special time with Santa and each child will leave with a present from the big man himself. Each party will also receive a special family gift for the home.
Finally, now step outside into the Winter Wonderland where Rudolph will keep you entertained and help you find the magical wishing well.
With plenty of your own photo opportunities available, this really is an experience not to be missed. We look forward to seeing you!
Children MUST be accompanied by at least 1 full paying adult and ALL entrants into the Grotto MUST purchase a ticket!

Children £14.99
