The magic is growing in Santa's Christmas grotto
27th November - 24th December
Here at Kingfisher, we’re committed to helping families come together this Christmas to celebrate the magic of the festive period.
Running from 27th November up until 24th December, guests will be able to enjoy a special experience, perfect for the whole family, with our very own Santa’s grotto.
Drawing on the classic, seasonal tale ‘Twas the night before Christmas’, our grotto experience will take your little ones on an enchanting, Christmassy journey which will have them excited and ready for the big day itself. Combining snippets and scenes from the classic story, a Christmas-themed craft activity, and the all-important meet-and-greet with Santa himself, our grotto will be sure to see off your festivities in style.
Welcomed into the grotto by Santa’s elves, children will firstly be given the opportunity to select a magic bean, which they can then plant in a pot of magical soil and sprinkle with some magical growth spray. Upon meeting Santa, children will be able to place their magic bean pots in Santa’s Magical Growing Chamber, before being able to speak and take photos with the main man himself. There might even be an early Christmas present for them too!
Now we come onto the magical, surprise part of our special grotto experience – parents, remember to keep this part secret. Following their meeting with Santa, your little ones will be asked to open up Santa’s Magical Growing Chamber to discover what their magic beans have miraculously transformed into – their very own real mini-Christmas tree! The fun doesn’t stop there though. After leaving Santa’s grotto, your children will be given the chance to decorate their new mini-Christmas tree, using our supply of miniaturised decorations.
Available to pre-book for just £6 per child, our Santa’s grotto will immerse your children in all the joys and wonders of the festive season. For children with special educational needs, dedicated Quiet Hours will also be available from 10:30-11:30am on 5th, 12th and 19th December, as well as from 4-5pm on 7th, 14th and 21st December.
Find Santa's grotto located on Park Walk, between Coffee #1 and Waterstones.
