Santa's Grotto heads to Captain Cook Square

Santa is making two stops in Middlesbrough to check who has been naughty and nice before the big day.

The festive Santa’s Grotto – complete with its special smoking chimney – returns to Middlesbrough on Saturday, December 8 and 15.

Captain Cook Square will play host to the attraction from 10am – 4pm both Saturdays.

The cost is £5 per child, including gift, and early booking is advised.

Lynn Stainsby, Captain Cook Square centre manager, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Santa’s Grotto to Captain Cook Square.

“It is a really magical experience for the children that gets all the family in the Christmas spirit.” 

Cllr Mick Thompson, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive Member for Culture and Communities, said: “Santa’s Grotto always pulls in the crowds to Middlesbrough. It’s fantastic for local businesses and there is always a buzz around the town.”
