Christmas 2019

About Visit Santa Experience

From: £7.50

Canterbury Christmas Market welcomes you to a fantastically fun festive experience in our new grotto in the Marlowe Arcade in Whitefriars Shopping Centre. Meet our magical fairy Gem Gem for a sprinkle of fairy dust and a nose wiggle, followed by a fun, creative experience in our elf workshop with our big elves that really are trying their hardest to be good. The children will receive their very own elf hat, learn their elf name, help the big elves count the shELF toys, take part in a fun craft activity and then meet the big man himself. Each child will receive an elf hat, a gift and of course their Certified Elf certificate.
