Santa's Festive Grotto

There’s a fantastic Santa Extravaganza coming to Shipley this December!

It’s the festive season again and Santa is making a special stop by Shipley! From Saturday, 6th December you’ll find him in his grotto 8-10 Westgate, the Shipley Indoor Market – where an elf helper will be assisting Santa to hand out chocolate treats and with the option of taking a photo so you and your child will have a memento of the special day!

Come along to the magical setting of the grotto, and meet all of Santa’s helpers – red-nosed Rudolph, the enchanting Toy Soldier and even a penguin have come along from the North Pole too! There’s even a magic post box – so you can post your letters straight to Santa’s workshop where all the elves are busy putting together the presents.

The Christmas fun will be running throughout December so be sure to come along to take part in the fantastic festive activities, meet Santa and have a wonderful time! See below for all the times and dates – can’t wait to see you there!

Times: 10.30am – 3pm

Did you meet our toy soldiers in Nottingham Intu Victoria Centre at the weekend?

Our Toy Soldiers went off to Nottingham at the weekend - they were very popular as always!

They helped out carrying shopping bags, calling lifts and having lots of fun with the shoppers out to take advantage of the Black Friday events.

See here for an article in the Nottingham Post!

Christmas Time is Here!

Christmas is officially here!

We're very busy in the Q20 office, sending out Santa, all his elves and some of his good friends too, like Percy Penguin, Rockin' Robin, Minty the Polar Bear and Frosty the Snowman.

See below to find out about an event near you!

If you're in the Livingston area, you should pop along to the Livingston McArthur Design Outlet to meet Santa in his grotto (with elves helping out to take special photos of children meeting Santa). There's also craft workshops run by our magical toy soldiers and rag dolls, and mini-pantomimes taking place on the 6th & 20th Dec!

All through the festive season, there's a Toy Soldier and an Elf waiting to meet you at the East Lancs Railway Christmas trains event! If you'd like to take a magical journey on a real steam train, meet Santa and his helpers, then be sure to get tickets soon!

Shipley's in for a real treat this December - we've got an amazing Wizard of Oz pantomime show on the 6th, and lots of other fun activities going on up until Christmas! There'll be a grotto with Santa visiting, some helpful elves to take and hand out some photos of those magical memories!
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz will be in Shipley this year!
