Meet Santa, make a toy, and listen to a festive tale - it's the perfect activity for your Christmas break!

Enter the very special world of Santa’s Workshop. A sparkling experience the whole family can enjoy, you'll be taken on a festive journey where you'll discover the secrets behind Santa's magical workplace and meet the twinkly-eyed man himself.

The first stop is the Creation Station, the elves' favourite place because this is where the magic happens! Here you will make your very own Jolly Ginger Teddy, the star of our Christmas tale, who you can take home with you.

Once your toy is ready, it's time to move onto our second stop and meet the man behind all the magic - Santa Claus. After welcoming everyone into his very special workshop and asking you to get comfortable, he’ll read you the tale of the Jolly Ginger, a magical gingerbread.
