Santa Claus is coming to... Monkton Elm

Father Christmas has decided to take up residence at Monkton Elm once again this festive period. He would really like to meet all the good boys and girls from the area.

Visiting the big man himself is a magical experience for little ones. The visit will include a one on one chat with Santa and children will receive a present. There will also be a chance to purchase photo gifts of the occasion.

This year we are operating a traditional style system, with no need to book, just turn up on the day. Please arrive as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Santa will arrive in the Elm Tree Restaurant at 9.30am on Saturday 24th November where Santa will be wondering around and talking to children who are having breakfast. He will also be joined by a number of other characters, including a snowman, a reindeer and possibly even Postman Pat! He will then be in his grotto from 10.30 that morning.

Santa will also be in residence in his grotto each Saturday and Sunday until Christmas, 25th November, 1st & 2nd December, 8th & 9th December, 15th & 16th December and 22nd & 23rd December from 10am until 4pm. He will also be in his grotto on Wednesdays (28th Nov, 5th & 12th Dec) from 3pm until 6pm.

Children can also visit any day from Monday 17th December – Monday 24th December inclusive between 10am & 4pm.

Cost to see Santa is £7.00 per child which includes a present. He is very much looking forward to seeing as many children as possible!
