A brand new Santa’s Grotto experience is coming to Altrincham this December.
Kids of Cheshire, in partnership with Altrincham BID, have created a unique Winter Wonderland experience to meet Santa Claus in a snow-topped igloo on George Street.
A specially created Winter Wonderland will see children journey through a snowy forest to meet Santa in his igloo, where they’ll receive a small gift – as well as the chance to take part in craft sessions with Santa’s Elves.
The new experience will run across two weekends in December – 3rd/4th and 10th/11th, from 10am to 4pm. Tickets can be booked here on Eventbrite and cost £11 plus booking fee.
Riva Danson, Artistic Director of Kids of Cheshire, explained: “We’re so excited to be delivering this magical experience to my hometown of Altrincham working alongside Altrincham BID helping to spread Christmas cheer in the town with a spectacular Santa’s Grotto for all to enjoy.”
Altrincham resident and mum-of-two Riva, an interior designer, set up Kids of Cheshire after identifying a need for a local family club that caters for both parent and child.
The new Santa’s Grotto experience is part of Altrincham’s Christmas calendar.
