Call Santa now

Video calls with Santa have seen a surge in demand in recent days, as parents prepare for a Christmas with a difference this year.

As more venues are forced to announce the cancellation of their traditional grottos, one online grotto has said it has seen bookings increase by more than 1,000 per cent this month. Santa’s Grotto Live aims to make sure children don’t miss out on this encounter by giving certainty to parents’ festive plans.

The brand-new online Santa experience promises to be the most magical video call of the year, with children and their families able to chat to Father Christmas over Zoom, all from the comfort of their homes. Multiple people can join the call, which means grandparents and other family members are able to share the festive joy. For information and to book tickets visit
