Meet Father Christmas

27th Nov - 24th Dec

Experience the true magic of Christmas by giving back and helping local families at The Mall Luton this Christmas - visit Father Christmas at his magical workshop with proceeds being donated to Luton Foodbank.


Meet the Toy Guard before entering the Grotto to be transformed into an elf and meet Father Christmas. You’ll then be led past the reindeers to the elf workshop where you can make reindeer food to scatter outside your home on Christmas Eve and meet Reggie the Reindeer!

To capture these memories forever, there is a selection of beautiful photo gifts to purchase. The Grotto is open every weekend from Saturday 27th November, then daily from Saturday 18th December through to Christmas Eve.

Grotto visits are £5 suggested donation per child (these visits include meeting Father Christmas, a gift and the elf workshop to make reindeer food). Photo memories can be purchased separately.

ALL proceeds from visits and a % of photo sales* will be donated to Luton Foodbank to help local families this Christmas.

There will be quiet sessions from 9am on Sundays 12th and 19th December.
