Visiting Port Sunlight Santa’s Grotto

Once Santa has welcomed us all in we sit and listen to Santa tell us a jolly story and maybe a singalong, lets hope the adults know the words!
Then it’s time for a gift from Santa.    Ho Ho Ho.

Port Sunlight Santa is a jolly experience for groups of children, up to 14 or so at a time lasting around fifteen minutes. There is no booking needed for Port Sunlight Santa. Each Child can be accompanied by two adults. All children including ‘in arms’ are chargeable.

A magical family trip that’ll leave you feeling as Christmassy as mince pie.

Santa drops in to Church Farm for a few days in December on his way to the North Pole. He also brings his friends the elves, Frosty the snowman, Rudolph and some other friends.

Come and visit the beautifully lit-up forest for songs, dancing and audience participation with the folk from the North Pole. Plus mulled wine and mince pies for adults, and chocolate gifts for children.

Marvel at your personalised visit – how do Santa and his friends know all the children’s names and what they want for Christmas? It’s magic!
