Santa’s Grotto

Experience the magic of Christmas this year at Santa’s Grotto in Chesterfield Market Hall! Meet Santa and tell him what you would like for Christmas.

Tickets can be purchased online here. Alternatively, contact the Visitor Information Ser vice or call 01246 345777. A maximum of two adults can attend with each paying child, so any extra adults will need to buy a ticket.

Every child who visits Santa will receive a wrapped present and they will be able to talk to him about what their Christmas wishes are this year. Each time slot to see Santa will admit up to 10 people, over a 30-minute timeframe.

Relaxed sessions are available on certain dates. The relaxed sessions will be adapted for children with learning disabilities or sensory and communication disorders. There will be no flashing lights and the sessions will be extended to reduce anxiety. We want to allow everyone to enjoy a visit to Santa!

Don’t forget to bring your phones or cameras to capture some photographs of you and your family meeting Santa.
