Covid-Safe Santa in The Mall, Maidstone

WE ARE OPEN! And taking bookings to talk to Santa NOW!

Santa will be chatting to the children at The Mall Maidstone this year through a video link connected to The North Pole!

Santa’s Grotto in The Mall Maidstone is OPEN!

When you enter the Grotto, you will be greeted by Santa on a big TV screen. The children can have a lovely chat with him; tell them what they would like for Christmas; they they have been good this year and will leave a mince pie for him and a carrot for Rudolph.

Santa will then take a couple of photos and you will be able to chose your picture and collect the present from the photo counter.
