Chantry centre Christmas grotto

Father Christmas is in town!

Round up your reindeer, hop in your sleighs and head to the magical Chantry Centre grotto this festive season!

Father Christmas and his marvellous team of elves have made a special trip to Andover and are nestled in a cosy log cabin close to Jenny’s and Toy Arena.

Families can look forward to a fun-filled experience, which will include visiting the head elf in her busy gift-making workshop, meeting Father Christmas and unwrapping a great little gift.

And there’s no need to book – grotto guests can simply turn up on the day and they will be well looked after by the North Pole’s finest. Tickets cost £5 per child, adults do not need to pay.

Leader of Test Valley Borough Council, councillor Phil North said: “Father Christmas and his elves can’t wait to meet you all, so pop down to the Chantry Centre and enjoy a magical trip to a snow-covered wonderland.”
