Santa’s Grotto and Winter Lights at St Michael’s Hospice

WHEN: 5th-8th December, 12th-14th December WHERE: St Michael's Hospice, Bartestree, HR1 4HA

In the run-up to Christmas we’ll be joined by a very special visitor; Santa himself. This year’s Grotto and Winter Lights will be held at St Michael’s from Thursday 5th to Sunday 8th and Thursday 12th to Saturday 14th December.

Start in the Workshop Café by completing a fun quiz before venturing outside to view the mesmerising Winter Lights.

Little ones can explore the Naughty Elf Garden, sleigh store, reindeer stables and gingerbread village before entering the Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post.

Inside the Trading Post, each child can exchange their quiz sheet for gold coins with adults and children able to enjoy a free hot drink.

Each child will then have the chance to meet Santa himself and receive a gift.
