When: 17th Nov – Christmas Eve

Where: Quayvaria – The enchanted village – opposite Ernest Jones


Princes Quay shopping centre will be welcoming families into the Christmas grotto for an experience that promises to be truly magical.

Children will enter a wintery starlit forest filled with the homes of Father Christmas, elves and fairies. They will be able to see elves at work before they make their way towards Father Christmas’s snug. Within the grotto, children will be able to meet the big man in red himself and share their gift wish list, they will also be given a magic bean.

A little Christmas magic and a lot of festive spirit is said to make the magical bean grow.

Once children leave the grotto they will enter the Toy Workshop, where there will be a special activity for all to enjoy.

Boasting a wider range than ever before the merchandise gift shop has everything you will need to capture the memories created this season.

Admission is just £6 and customers can book their visit online if they wish. The grotto’s grand opening will take place after Santa’s parade on Sunday 17th November, scheduled to open approximately 12.30pm.

Sarah Smith, Princes Quay Marketing Manager said:

“We have a huge reputation in the city when it comes to Christmas, expectations are high and we know we have to deliver an experience that wows the crowds. The grotto is one of the highlights of the year for the centre and we look forward to Father Christmas opening the doors following his city centre welcome and parade on Sunday 17th Nov. ”

Built and designed by local Creative Agency, Drunk Animal, the grotto incorporates an enchanted village and in typical Drunk Animal style, they’ve gone all out.

Calvin Innes from Drunk Animal said:

“Something we thrive on is creating experiences that people will remember, and what is a more magical experience than a visit to Father Christmas in his Grotto.

We’ve created the most stunning, enchanted Christmas experience for all ages, and we can’t wait for people to visit and share the magic.”
