Santa’s Grotto

Festive Fun here at the Beacon Centre!

With Christmas approaching, we are thrilled to announce a fantastic programme of activities and events for the whole community to enjoy. The festive fun commences with the arrival of Santa and his trusty elves on Saturday 7th Dec. A visit to Santa, who will be in his grotto on selected dates* until 21 December, costs just £1 per child and includes a small gift as part of the visit. All proceeds from the Grotto will be donated to the North Shields Fishermen’s’ Mission, ensuring that all funds raised go directly back into the community.

The 7th & 8th December sees the return of the wonderful Victorian Christmas Market in Northumberland Square.  To add to the festivities, within the Centre children can meet Santa*, as well as try their hand at a festive craft and have their face painted for FREE.

In addition to the many seasonal offers available from stores, we will also be giving away a host of prizes in the run up to Christmas through a number of competitions on Facebook, so be sure to check out our facebook page.

*Santa’s Grotto will be open on the following dates:

Sat 7th & Sun 8th December: 11am-3pm

Sat 14th December: 11.30am-2pm

Sat 21nd December: 11.30am-2pm
