Santa Claus, aged 1,751, is due to arrive at Meadowhall later today (November 10) during a Christmas parade. The mega mall has released CCTV images which appear to show Mr Claus’ elves putting some finishing touches on his brand new Chrismas Chronicles grotto experience. In the images, the elves can be seen wrapping presents and decorating the Christmas tree. Some have even been caught lacking and taking a nap.
Darren Pearce, centre director at Meadowhall: “We know a visit from Santa is extra special, so it’s great to see the elves hard at work preparing for his arrival! We’re looking forward to him bringing lots of Christmas cheer to the centre in the run up to Christmas.”
The Christmas parade, which kicks off at 5pm, will see Mr Claus, also known as Father Christmas or Saint Nick, arrive in the centre by sleigh. Along with a host of other characters, Mr Claus will travel through the centre before arriving at his workshop in the Christmas Chronicles.
Meadowhall is inviting families to come and watch the parade free of charge. The Christmas Chronicles experience will be in the centre until Christmas Eve, with tickets currently available to purchase on the event’s website.
Families who visit the attraction during its stay at the shopping centre will embark on a battle to save Christmas, before taking a festive train ride to meet Mr Claus himself.
