Father Christmas Is In Town!

Father Christmas is in Town!

Alabaré are delighted to be working with Father Christmas and his elves this year as festive fun arrives at Cross Keys shopping centre in Salisbury.  Fresh from his sleigh journey from the North Pole, Father Christmas and his elves have set up home in the city. He has used his magical powers to transform one the empty shop units in the arcade into an enchanting Christmas Kingdom complete with Snow-capped trees, wintery landscapes and twinkling lights. Children can enjoy the magic of visiting Father Christmas with their lists of present wishes, and in return receive a small gift, kindly provided by Tiger.


Despite this being his busiest time of the year, Santa will be in his Cross Keys grotto until Saturday 17th December. The grotto will be open every Thursday evening and all day on Saturdays.  Minimum donations of just £5 per child are requested. All money received will go towards funding a dedicated Alabaré Support Worker to help homeless people in Salisbury off of the streets. The event is the brainchild of Salisbury BID who are supporting Alabaré’s #HomesnotStreets campaign this year.

 Just a stone’s throw from the Christmas Market in the city centre, Alabaré and Salisbury BID are looking forward to welcoming you to this magical experience. 

A very happy Rory and Fergus Sime meeting Father Christmas at the Grotto.
