Even though this is Santa's busiest time of year, he has managed to take time away from the North Pole to visit The Whitaker!
To make him feel at home we will be turning our Reflect & Respond room into a magical grotto. Come and pay Santa a visit, listen to a festive story and receive a special gift.
Afterwards, there are free festive activities for you to join in with around the museum and of course, our WinterFest!
The grotto will be open on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 December at 10.30am, 11.45am, 2pm and 3.30pm.
