There’s a grand arrival in Wellingborough this weekend, with Santa making his way from the North Pole to Swansgate Shopping Centre.
On Saturday, December 5, Santa will be making his first appearance at Swansgate from 11am to 4pm.
Young shoppers will be able to meet Santa to tell him what’s on their Christmas list, as well as take home a free gift.
Santa is here to stay for the festive season too, as he will also be at Swansgate on Saturday, December 12 and 19.
Visitors to Swansgate have plenty of time to get their Christmas presents this year, as the shopping centre extends its opening times.
On selected dates in December, stores at Swansgate will be welcoming shoppers until 7pm, so everything can get ticked off Christmas lists before the big day.
Centre manager Lindsay Tickner said: “Santa is always a huge hit with our younger visitors, and we’re thrilled to be welcoming him once again as part of our festive celebrations.
“And for our grown-up shoppers, we’re extending our opening times so that everything will be ready ahead of the big day.
“We’d like to wish all our shoppers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”
