The Hub in America Lane will become Santa’s home from Monday to Wednesday (December 20-22), said development officer Anna Sharkey.

Children will be allowed into Father Christmas’s workshop where they can choose and wrap a present for someone special.

“Then they will get to visit Santa in his grotto where they will receive their own present specially picked for them by Santa and Mrs Clause,” said Anna.

New toys can be dropped off at the Hub from Monday to Saturday, 9am-12pm, before December 17.

Tickets will be available from Monday (December 6) at Bentswood Hub.
