Christmas Welcome

Throughout this period we'll be bringing Christmas to life in centre with our festive friends spreading magic and cheer.

Come and see them arrive on the 4th November and then every Saturday after all the way up to Christmas Eve. 


Mrs Claus

Mrs Claus is best known for making cookies with the elves, caring for the reindeer, and checking the naughty and nice list with Santa Claus. She’s the busiest wife around at this time of year, but she’s making time in her schedule to come see all the little (and big) shoppers this Christmas and spread the biggest of Christmas cheers. Mrs Claus and her elf can be found near to the main Dome at 11:00, 12:00, 13:00, 14:00 & 15:00 for 40 minutes with a 20 minute break between each performance
