Christmas lights switch on and grotto opening - Saturday 7 November

Santa is on his way!

Join us on Saturday 7th November for festive fun and magic. Kicking off from 2.00pm there will be Victorian carts with popcorn and roasted chestnuts, face-painting, meet real-life reindeer, carols and more!

Santa will touch down in his reindeer driven sleigh to pick up his Special Helper on Sloane Square, before travelling on to Duke of York Square to turn on our Christmas lights at 4.30pm. Afterwards he will take up residence in his famous Duke of York Square Grotto where you can pay him a visit.

The event is complimentary; however donations are welcome and go directly to our charity partner Children and The Arts.

Should you wish to book to see Santa, please do so here.
