This year, Santa will be bringing his Winter Wonderland to none other than Ipswich! He would like to give all of the good boys and girls the chance to see his home, and find out what they would like for Christmas. Joining Santa will be his lovely wife Mrs Claus, a rather mischievous elf and the Winter Fairy.

Join us for the most wonderful, magical time. All of the children will have the opportunity to write their Christmas letter with Mrs Claus, and listen to her telling her favourite Christmas story. Then join us for a Christmas Sing-a-Long and some photo opportunities with Mrs Claus, the mischievous Elf and the Winter Fairy. And for those grumbly bellies, we will have a scrumptious selection of party food for you. Then, follow us through to Santa’s private grotto where you will have the chance to meet the big man himself. Make sure to tell him what you would like for Christmas this year, and he will have a special gift for you. And for all of you lovely grownups that will be coming along, we would like to give you a hot drink or mulled wine and mince pie.
