Feels like Christmas

We are delighted to welcome Santa back to Northgate Shopping Centre this Christmas.  We’ve been busy planning with Santa and his elves to bring you a safe and magical experience with Santa.  

To ensure the safety of your family and our staff, online bookings to visit Santa are essential and we won’t be taking walk-ins. Photos will look a little different this year with families sitting at a safe distance from Santa, although we promise it will still be fun and memorable.

What you need to do:

• Book online (we suggest booking early to secure your preferred date and time) 
• Have your booking confirmation ready to show Santa’s helper on the day, either on your phone or print off your confirmation.
• Arrive within 5-minutes of your booking and not any earlier or later. This will help avoid queues and customers gathering.  
• Wait in queue and maintain social distancing from other groups.
What you can expect on the day:

• One of Santa’s helpers will look after you and ensure everyone follows our COVID-Safe measures. 
• All visitors will sit/stand a safe 1.5m distance from Santa and his helpers, but you can still tell Santa what you want for Christmas.
• All props will be handled by Santa and his team.
• A max of 5 people can be in a photo at any one time.
• Hand sanitiser will be available for your use.
• Staff will also explain the COVID- Safe process to you on arrival.
• You will be further distanced from staff by a protective screen and a separate monitor to view your photos.
• While you can’t sit on Santa’s lap, you’ll be seated nearby on stools that will be cleaned between sessions.
• You can expect to wait up to 5 minutes for your photos. 
Other things to know:

• Before starting work each day, Santa and his helpers will have their health and temperatures checked. 
• Staff will also be frequently cleaning all customer touch points and between sessions.
• If you or your family are feeling unwell or awaiting COVID test results you are not permitted to attend your session but can rebook to attend at a later date. 
Create new memories this Christmas with an unforgettable 2020 Santa photo.
