Santa Arrives at Paradise & Christmas Market

Sat 23rd November

Celebrate Christmas at Paradise!

Santa will be arriving at Paradise in his beautiful horse & carriage on Saturday 23rd November 2019 at 10:30am sharp. You can enjoy a short ride in his horse and carriage too!

At 11am, Santa will then officially open our Christmas Market and then light our Christmas Tree before taking pride of place in his grotto from 12noon.

Enjoy a hot chocolate and a mince pie whilst wandering our selection of festive stalls to purchase those special Christmas gifts!

When booking to see Santa in his Grotto, remember to arrive 20 minutes earlier as this also includes Ginger bread and bauble decorating – the bauble is yours to keep! There is Christmas arts and crafts and the opportunity to write your letters to Santa – so make sure you bring your Christmas lists with you!
