Event description
This Christmas, we are excited to invite you into Santa’s magical Workshop at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Ashford!

About this event

At Santa’s Workshop, you will learn all about the big man in red himself, Santa! Where did he learn the twinkling tricks of the trade? What is the knack behind the signature ‘Ho-Ho-Ho’? How does he really get around the world in one night?

Join us at the most magical cabin on earth, for an advent like no other, as we unlock the most closely guarded secrets of Christmas!

Upon arrival, you will be greeted by our Workshop Elf Crew as you step inside the Christmas Cabin of make-believe and learning, as you become Santa’s new Elf recruits. The workshops will explore different topics and activities, you won't want to miss out, see the schedule below!

Plus, not forgetting, we will have extra safety measures to keep our crew and you safe too!

Every Sunday we will be opening the Workshop for tailored SEN Sessions at 12PM and 12.30 pm. An inclusive session that involves the same activities, but in a quieter and calmer environment for those who prefer those experiences.

The tickets for our Santa’s Workshop experience have a suggested donation of £5 per child ticket. All proceeds raised from the tickets will be donated to our charity partner of the year which is the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI)*.

*On rivers and around the coastline, volunteer lifeboat crews at the Royal National Lifeboat Institution stations provide a 24-hour rescue service in the UK and Ireland, and seasonal lifeguards look after people on busy beaches. Flood Rescue Team helps those affected by flooding. To do so, they rely on the safest, most reliable equipment, lifeboats, and modern stations to launch from. All RNLI lifeboat launches and lifeguard rescues are powered by you. Without your support, the brave lifeboat volunteers and lifeguards could not save lives. You’re behind every life saved and every family reunited. Thank you for making every life they save possible.
