Festive spirit in full swing at Touchwood as Father Christmas returns

Sarah Mason 20th Nov, 2021

FINAL preparations are underway as Touchwood awaits the arrival of Father Christmas this festive season.

The Grotto, in the Solihull shopping centre, will give children the chance to meet with the man himself and tell him about how good they have been this year.

They will also get a gift and get a photo of the moment.

For the first time this year, shoppers there will be Santa’s Post Train where children can write that all-important letter and send it direct to the North Pole with a little Christmas magic from one of the elves.

Lucy Burnett, marketing manager at Touchwood, said: “With the festive season fast approaching, we’re delighted to see the return of our hugely popular Santa’s Grotto as well as host the Post Train which will be a hugely exciting addition to our festivities.

“Guests can also be assured that we have all recommended safety measures in place to ensure a magical and safe visit this year.”

The Grotto and Santa’s Post Train will be at Touchwood until December 24.
