Santa makes magical return to St George’s Hall this Christmas
Liverpool’s iconic St George’s Hall has announced the return with its successful Grotto for a third magical year – and it promises to be even bigger and better for Christmas 2015. Santa’s Magical Grotto sets the scene for an exciting festive season when it opens each weekend from 21 November to 13 December. It then daily from 14 and 23 December.
Children and their families will be treated to live character performances along a festive treasure trail which leads to a traditional grotto. There, they will meet Santa Claus who will present them with an early Christmas gift – especially if they’ve been good!
This year’s grotto at St George’s Hall is set in a magical Winter Wonderland. The wonderland path leads you passed winter trees and gifts to Santa, passing by a number of wonderland rooms where you will be able to see Santa at work the Nnight before Christmas, take a look into Santa’s workshop, and be able to write and post a letter to Santa.
The last two grottos have proved such an unprecedented success, that families queued around the hall to meet Santa – and this year with a brand new theme and displays the success is sure to continue.
The grotto is open from 10am to 5pm (last entry 4.30pm). Tickets are priced at £7.50 (payable on the door), and also include meeting Santa Claus, a selection box and entry for up to two accompanying adults.
A professional photographer will be on-hand to capture the ultimate festive magical moment – when youngsters meet Santa. Families are also welcome to take their own photographs.
Alan Smith, General Manager at St George’s Hall, said: “St George’s Hall is a Liverpool landmark – so where better to bring your family and enjoy a traditional magical grotto. We were thrilled with the success of our previous grottos – so there was no question about throwing open our doors again this Christmas. This year, our excited young visitors (and old ones too!), can look forward to live performances from fairy-tale characters and a treasure trail, transforming our cells and Catacomb Galleries, before meeting Santa Claus. We look forward to ensure everyone has a truly magical time.”
