Santa Claus is coming to town

Santa Claus Father Christmas Andover 2020


To help out young people who have not been able to see Father Christmas this year, we have arranged one special, final stopover in Andover on Christmas Eve.

The Andover Radio Elves, along with the magical pixies living in the village of Thruxton have managed to get a special agreement from the big man to make one final appearance in Andover between 3:30 and 5:30pm on Christmas Eve.

This is specifically to assist young people who had their appointment to see the fella in the big red suit cancelled recently. Those who have not been able to see Santa at Dobbies will get priority. However, if Santa’s time allows, it may be possible to admit young people whose parents have not been able to book their young ones in elsewhere.

This special Santa Grotto is free of charge and follows news that a local garden centre cancelled their grotto four days before Christmas. Ella Palmer from Love Andover says, “We think it’s important that our little ones get to see Santa.

“With the amazing Richard Smart from Thruxton we’ve got through all the red-tape and security checks up at the North Pole, have everything Covid-secure and received some goodies courtesy to Yvonne and her team at ASDA in Andover.

“Santa’s PR department say he is excited to be able to come to Andover at the last minute this Christmas Eve”.

The location of the special grotto, complete with sleigh, twinkly lights, festive music… and snow! will revealed to parents who complete the form below and whose application is agreed by our Elves.

Please complete the information on the form, below and we will be in contact about your visit.

Please note places are strictly limited (so don’t promise anything until you hear from us) and children booked into, but cancelled by Dobbies get priority.
