Santa’s coming to Springfields

Have your say

It’s time for the whole family to get in the festive mood this Christmas at Springfields Outlet Shopping, Spalding, thanks to the opening of Santa’s Grotto and the spectacular Winter Wonderland Walk.

The magic begins today, with the arrival of Santa himself. He’ll be arriving with his real reindeer at 6.15pm – and leaving plenty of time to get a good spot to see him is recommended.

There will be the chance to get up close with the reindeer plus entertainment the whole family will enjoy.

Entry to the Winter Wonderland Walk is free, and Santa will be in his grotto with the last admission at 8pm.

The Winter Wonderland Walk is an amazing journey through the Festival Gardens, which have been specially decorated with a Christmas theme.

The walk and grotto will then be open every day through to Christmas Eve; Monday-Fridays 4-8pm, Saturdays 3-5.30pm, and Sundays 2-4.30pm. Admission to Santa’s Grotto is £4 per child which includes a chocolate gift.

Tonight also marks the start of late night shopping at Springfields, which will be open until 9pm every weekday up to December 21.

Tracy Thomas, Springfields Communications Manager, said: “Welcome to Christmas at Springfields.

“Our Winter Wonderland Walk is an annual favourite with families and this year we’ve decided to make it free for the first time.

“Combined with a trip to Santa’s Grotto, it’s a great family experience and is sure to get everyone into the festive spirit.

“Come along, meet Santa and his reindeer and join in the fun.”
