Santa’s Magical Grotto at St George’s Hall
Liverpool’s iconic St George’s Hall has announced details of its annual magical grotto – and it promises to be even bigger and better for Christmas 2014. Santa’s Magical Grotto sets the scene for an exciting festive season when it opens each weekend from 15 November to 7 December. It then opens daily between 13 and 23 December.

Visitors will be treated to live character performances along a festive treasure trail which leads to a traditional grotto. Here, they meet Santa Claus who will present them with an early Christmas gift – if they’ve been good!

Fairy-tale character Mister Grimm is joined by goblins, gnomes and yetis to welcome youngsters to the festive wonderland of fun activities. They will explore the Catacombs of St George’s Hall which are filled with eye-popping displays, there they’ll find clues to help solve a puzzle with a reward waiting for them at the end.

Last year’s grotto proved such an unprecedented success, that families queued around the hall to meet Santa – and they were full of praise for the new city grotto at St George’s Hall. To meet the anticipated demand for 2014, pre-bookable and fast track tickets have been introduced to enhance the overall experience and give families the opportunity to beat the queues and tickets are on sale now.

Pre-bookable slots are at 10am, 10.30am, 11am and 11.30am on the following Saturdays and Sundays – 15 and 16 November, 22 and 23 November, 29 and 30 November, and 6 and 7 December. Then the same times daily between 13 and 23 December.

Fast-track advance tickets are priced at £8 per child, with up to two accompanying adults. The ticket includes grotto entry to meet Father Christmas and gift. The price for additional accompanying adults is £1.50, which can be paid on the door.

The grotto is also open between 12pm – 5pm (last entry 4.30pm) on the same dates. These tickets are priced at £7 (payable on the door), and also include meeting Santa Claus, gift and entry for up to two accompanying adults. Queues are to be expected.

A professional photographer will be on-hand to capture the ultimate festive magical moment – when youngsters meet Santa. Families are also welcome to take their own photographs.
