All aboard the Santaland Express at The Mall Blackburnigum!

27th Nov - 25th Dec

The Mall Blackburn is excited to take families on a brand-new magically Christmas adventure for 2021.


Children will journey from Blackburnigum Station, all the way to Yulevik Station to meet Santa at The Christmas Workshop.

From the 27th November, right up to Christmas Eve, the Santaland Express will be ready and waiting in The Mall to transport visitors through time and space to meet the big man himself.

Families will be welcomed to a quaint, make-believe festive train station by Station Master Elfo, then it’s all aboard the Santaland Express where music, sound effects and video visuals create the feeling they’re on a magical journey to the Christmas Kingdom.

Carriage doors open into the beautifully decorated Grand Hall where Santa will be waiting to meet and greet each and every child.

Not only does each child enjoy the train journey, meet Santa, and receive a quality gift, they also come away with a novel keepsake train ticket, and parents are welcome to take photos throughout. 

People are being urged to book online to avoid disappointment and enjoy one of the region’s most polished and professional festive experiences.

Tickets are £9.95 per child including a maximum of one parent. Book in advance to avoid disappointment; this looks set to be a sell out!

Book online at 

A limited number of walk-up slots will also be available.
