Santa's grotto

Santa's grotto

Santa will be in his grotto a little later on school days running up to Christmas, so there's time to bring your little ones after school finishes.

The Market Hall will host Santa’s grotto upstairs on the mezzanine level overlooking the Market Cafe and shops.

You can find the grotto by going through the Assembly Rooms side entrance of the Market Hall, next to Upper Crust. 


You can meet Santa on the following dates:
