St John’s Shopping Centre in Leeds, Offers Families the Chance to Experience Free Christmas Magic

25th November, 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd December.

Santa’s Grotto is, once again, making the trip to St Johns Shopping Centre this year and bringing joy, laughter, and festive magic to the heart of the Leeds this Christmas season.

St John’s will host Santa’s Grotto from 11am – 4pm on Saturday 25th November and Saturday 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd December. This much-loved festive attraction offers an opportunity for children of all ages to share their Christmas wishes, and have their photos taken to capture the magic forever.

The Christmas Grotto experience is free of charge, with the option to donate to a very worthy cause. Donations of any denomination will be gratefully accepted by Leeds Baby Bank who provide essential items to families in need - all money raised will help to ensure that every child has the chance to experience the joy and wonder of the holiday season.

What is more, St John’s is teaming up with the NSPCC this Christmas to offer a unique gift-wrapping service. On the 8th, 14th, 15th and 16th of December, visitors can support the NSPCC by having their presents beautifully wrapped right in the heart of the shopping centre. Donations from this service will go towards safeguarding children and providing essential support for families throughout the year.

St Johns General Manager, Andrew Stringer, said: ‘We are thrilled to announce the highly anticipated return of our cherished Christmas Grotto at St John’s Shopping Centre. It is our pleasure to provide families with a magical experience during the festive season, while alleviating any financial burden.

We are also proud to support Leeds Baby Bank through the generous donations we receive. This initiative allows us to make a positive impact on the lives of families in need within our community.’
