Video: St George’s Hall Grotto now open daily
St George’s Hall’s Christmas Grotto is now open and lots of children have already been to meet Santa to put in their early Christmas requests.
And from Saturday, 12th December until Thursday, 24th December, the Grotto is open every day. So if you’re in town doing your Christmas shopping, bring you little ones to meet the man of the moment!
For the third year, St George’s Hall has turned its historical catacombs into a magical winter wonderland, and this year’s Grotto is even bigger and better for Christmas 2015.
Children and their families will be totally enchanted by the Grotto. Follow the wonderland path which leads you past winter trees and gifts to Santa, passing by a number of wonderland rooms where you will be able to see Santa at work the night before Christmas, take a look into Santa’s workshop, and write and post a letter to Santa.
Children and their families will be treated to live character performances along the 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!
The last two grottos have proved such an unprecedented success with families queueing 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 6pm (last entry 5.30pm) apart from Christmas Eve when it is open from 10am to 3pm (last admission 2.30pm). 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.”
