Our Christmas Events

The Grotto Experience

Meet Santa at The Potting Shed CafeSo the big day is fast approaching – Father Christmas is on his way! Come along and see Santa, who will be making himself at home in our grotto from Saturday, November 30th.

A warm welcome awaits from Santa’s Elves

Bring your Little Potters along to meet Santa and his helpers, plus receive a present from the man himself.

Each child will receive a gift that’s right for their age and with 30 minutes between each visit, they will have plenty of time to tell the big man what they want for Christmas this year.

Santa will be with us every weekend throughout December, until Sunday December 22nd. Bookings are from 12:30pm until 4:30pm. The cost is £5 per child with under-ones going free.

What will my child receive from Father Christmas?

Each child and baby (including those under 1 year) will receive a special gift from Father Christmas.

Do I need to book?

Walk in visits to Santa’s Grotto are available on Saturdays and Sundays between 1pm and 4pm, with no booking required.

Please note however that for our special ‘Santa & Mrs Claus are coming to Town’ events, booking is required as spaces are limited.

What time can we visit?

Anytime from 12:30-4:30pm every Saturday and Sunday in December. Santa’s final visit will be on Sunday 22nd December.

We attended the breakfast with Santa event last year which was just lovely. The breakfast was beautiful but obviously the kids favourite was the story and crafts with Mr and Mrs Claus! Highly recommend 😊

The afternoon tea the Potting Shed was excellent value for money. The service was outstanding and the quality of the sandwiches and cakes excellent. Would definitely recommend.

We had a wonderful afternoon tea today. A lovely chance to catch up over fantastic savouries and sweet treats. The tea and coffee flowed, as did the chat in The Potting Shed. The atmosphere was lovely. Thank you.
