Sensitive Santa

A quieter time to meet Santa in a sensory friendly environment.

All sessions are held outside of standard trading hours when the centre is quietest and dimly lit. Bookings are required to provide an allocated time for each family and to avoid waiting in queue.

  • We have allocated time slots for families.
  • A Set Capacity will occur, which will include Santa and his elves.
  • For best results due to social distancing we will be shooting landscape photos only.
