Santa’s Grottos in London

If it’s Grotto’s you are looking for this Christmas period, then look no further than Westfield’s Snowflake Factory this season! Located at both Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City, take your little one on a magical journey through the portal to the North Pole where they get to create their very own Snowflake decoration to take home, see the elves in action, post a letter to Santa and meet the big man himself in his ice cave!


Book online to avoid disappointment as Santa understandably becomes very busy in December, and arrive to the Entrance located behind the grotto at your selected time slot – the elves work to a very strict schedule so everything can run smoothly! Like a well oiled machine, you will then be taken to the front door of the grotto where a special knock will allow you to enter into the portal. There you will be greeted by a 300 year old Professor who will magically transport you through one of the Portal doors via a magical snow globe to the North Pole itself!

Once in the North Pole you will find yourself in the Engine Room, the warm, fuzzy heart of the ice cold Snow Factory, where Elves create Snowflakes ready for the Winter. Amongst the glittering walls, lights and snow, let the elves help you create your very own Snowflake on their ice-pads, complete with personalised name – pretty COOL huh?! The elves will then get to engraving that name onto a real life snowflake decoration that will then be presented to your child to take home and hang on the tree.

Whilst you wait to go onto the next room, why not speak to Santa or the elves on the telephone, play a particularly challenging Snowflake pairs game on the wall, or indeed write a letter to Santa? There is a colouring station where you can draw a picture for Santa or write something that you would like to see under your tree and post it immediately via the express post box (this bit is particularly magical as your letter lights up the funnel as it travels straight to Santa’s letter department).
Last but not least, take your family in to see Santa in his glittering ice cave and find out if you’re on the good list, have the chance to let him know what you’d like for Christmas, and if you’re really good, you might even receive a present to take home with you.
Travel back through the Snow to where you can purchase your photo with Santa in a glitterbox,, a Snowflake magnet etc and take the magic home with you!

In other words, put Westfield’s Grotto on your good list this year and you and your kids will be talking about it all the way till next Christmas. Spread the Christmas cheer!

At Kids People we can organise and create a fantastic grotto with its very own Father Christmas with Elves and of course Fairies! Please get in touch for more information.

Need Santa hire for your Christmas event?

Father Christmas hire

So you have organised a Christmas event to top all others, for all those very excited Christmas loving children……what about hiring the real Father Christmas to be there too?  There is nothing better than seeing those children’s eyes light up when they first spot the red outfit and the white beard.  The magic of Christmas comes alive in an instant when they meet the iconic man himself.  With a “Ho ho ho” and a friendly chuckle the atmosphere is electric with excitement and curiosity….”is this the real one?!”  “How does he fit down my Chimney?!”……”How does he get round all the houses in one night?!”

At Kids People we hire out the real Santa, with his beautiful outfit, white beard, and fantastic personality, so of course he knows all the answers to those never ending questions from inquisitive little ones.  Being the real Santa he is of course punctual, professional and to get in line with the 20th Century he has been DBS checked too.  If it is just a meet and greet you need, or a Santa’s grotto for many weeks, our Santa simply loves meeting children, having photos, finding out Christmas wishes, giving out presents, and bringing the Christmas spirit to everyone.  But beware.  Not everyone has the real Santa on their books….there are a lot of people out there who pretend to be Santa, and just simply don’t bring that magical time of year to life.

We love Christmas…..who doesn’t?  It is our favourite time of year and we can’t wait for Christmas 2017! Mince pies, carols, decorations and presents…….and of course the real Santa too! Let us make your Christmas event the most magical it has ever been and click here to hire Santa today!
