Christmas at Festival Place including Santa visits

Festival Place, or Festive Place as it's known at this time of year, is full of fun things to do in the build up to Christmas and beyond!

There will be plenty for the whole family to enjoy including the Christmas light switch on which is due to take place on Friday 11 November between 4pm and 6pm. There will be a fireworks display and live acts to entertain the crowd. Elsa and Anna from Frozen will be there to get everyone singing along before Sue Holderness from the Anvil pantomime will hit the button with Santa to bring the Christmas lights to life.

From 12 November until 1st January Festival place will be putting on a Christmas experience which will delight the children. There will be a magical train ride through Porcester Square which will take children on a journey to visit Santa in his Grotto made from candy cane as well as all sorts of fun going on.
