The Glades
Christmas at The Glades

Immerse yourself in our Christmas experience this December, with festive fun for all the family. Come along and write a letter to Santa in our toy shop grotto, meet some of your favourite characters as they roam the centre, and even meet Father Christmas himself!



Step into a magical wonderland at our Toy Shop Grotto, where shelves are bursting with toys and wrapped gifts – a real treat for the eyes! Little ones can dive into the enchanting world of the toy shop, write a special letter to Santa, and pop it into our cheery red post box.

For all the good boys and girls, a jolly meeting with Santa awaits, complete with festive photos and a chance to share their Christmas wishes. And guess what? Because they’ve been so nice this year, they’ll even receive an early Christmas gift straight from Santa himself!
