Santa's Workshop and Grotto

With one week to go until Christmas Day, Santa is making a very special visit to Hexham Community Centre. His elves have fallen a little behind on their Christmas preparations so he's setting up a workshop here in Hexham.

Can you help create dazzling decorations? If you can you might just end up on the Nice List and get a special gift from Santa himself!

With 6 tables of craft activities and fun Christmas themed games, Santa's Workshop will get the whole family in the festive spirit and prepared for a very Messy Christmas*.

Santa will swing by the workshop to check in on production and will be inviting small groups of children and their adults into his grotto to receive a gift and take a photo. Visiting in small groups can make it less overwhelming for children, particularly on their first trip to Santa and if they are visiting with friends or family. 

*Crafts and games will be most suitable for children aged 3-8 years, but available to all. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

£12 per child 

Ticket price includes all craft activities, fun games and a visit to Santa's grotto with an age appropriate gift for each child.
