The Santa @ Saltwell Park experience:

Your journey begins at our Southern Shelter, which will be transformed into a Christmas Activity Zone!    Children will be greeted by our friendly Christmas helpers and invited to make their very own pouch of (biodegradable) reindeer food, for Santa's reindeer on Christmas eve-  Along with other festive activities! (duration 15 minutes)

All aboard the Christmas Train.....

Children will board the Christmas train outside of the Activity Zone (+1 accompanying adult per child) and will ride to Santa's Magical Grotto in the Northern Shelter.   On Route, why not see if you can spot our sneaky Christmas characters hiding in the trees?! 

The Christmas train will drop you off outside of Santas Grotto for an exclusive audience with Santa!

Children will be invited to gather around Santa's armchair.... get comfortable and listen to Santa as he tells tales and answers questions.  This will be an interactive session where children can really engage with our professional Santa- and ask as many questions as they like, whilst munching down on some tasty milk and cookies that will be dished out during the session.   

All Children will receive an age appropriate Christmas party bag and can have their photograph taken with the big man himself before venturing out into the Park!   (duration 15 minutes)


Extras @ the Almond Pavillion: 

We are partnering up with the Third Space Events LLP who will be providing a variety of outdoor street food vendors to cater for this event, situated outside of the Almond pavillion, be sure to drop by after your Santa visit to buy some tasty meals, treats and hot drinks.

A series of pop up performers will play Christmas songs at intervals over the course of this event.  Enjoy some music whilst you eat and drink  (Schedule will be released on the run up to the event date).

Saltwell Parks very own florist will be hosting a Christmas stall, selling a variety of plants and festive arrangements.    

The Almond Pavilion is positioned approximately half way between the Christmas activity space and Santa's grotto.
