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 the 2nd at 12pm, 2pm, and 4pm and on Sunday the 3rd at 12pm, and 2pm.
*On Sunday at 10am the santa session will be relaxed and for adult believers. This may include neurodivergent individuals or those with additional needs.
