Andover Events Christmas FamilyLife

Where can you find Santa this year in Andover ?

When you have children, part of the Christmas magic is visiting Santa to make sure that they’ve made it onto the nice list this year.

Visits will be slightly different this year as there will be social distancing measures to follow to keep everyone safe and all tickets must be pre-booked.

Children and their families can explore the  Winter Wonderland.  You will be welcomed by Santa and receive a special gift. They have  been working hard with Santa and his elves to ensure the safety of the team members and guests when you arrive this year.
