Santa’s Grotto Additional Needs Sessions

Saturday 30th November – Friday 13th December (various times)

Burston Garden Centre Christmas Grotto Event

£10.00 per child + £1 per accompanying adult

Come and visit Santa’s Grotto for one of our additional needs sessions. These sessions have been developed to provide a more relaxed and quieter environment for your child, with music volume dimmed throughout.

All of these sessions are the first of the day to help avoid stressful queues and when our centre tends to be quieter. We also offer sessions on the weekend,  weekday morning and afternoon.

Our winter wonderland grotto is also fully wheelchair accessible.

Children will be led by one of Santa’s elves into Candy Cane Lane, where they’ll explore a magical world of gingerbread men, giant lollipops and gingerbread houses.  Children will  have the option of creating a Christmas decoration for them to take away and hang on the tree at home. If your child would prefer to take the decoration away to finish at home, then just ask one of our elves, who will be happy to help.

Families will visit Santa individually, with kids having a chance to tell Santa all about the present they really want and of course, how they are definitely on the nice list! Every child will then be given an age-appropriate gift by Santa. Again we will be guided by you and your child, so please let our elf know on the day or beforehand if you would prefer, about the needs of your child.

This year you’ll be able to take your own photos within the grotto, as well as having a professional photo taken by one of Santa’s elves. You’ll have the chance to view your photo and a selection of photo gifts upon exiting the grotto.
