Meet Santa This December in Bury St Edmunds!

Santa and his elves will be bringing his festive Grotto to the arc shopping centre in Charter Square Bury St Edmunds from 1-24 December.

Plus there's all the fun of the fair for all the family with the return of the Christmas carousel and dodgems.

Santa will be arriving on Saturday December 1 at the arc shopping centre in Charter Square and his appearance in the town has been made possible by a team of his helpers from Our Bury St Edmunds, Bury St Edmunds Town Council and arc shopping centre.

The Christmas Grotto will be open between 11am and 5pm every day in December until Christmas Eve. Entry £5 per child. 


A number of places will be available to buy on the day, but to avoid disappointment tickets can be booked here now.

The Christmas Carousel will be in the arc shopping centre for the whole of December until New Year's Eve. The Dodgems will arrive on 15th December and will also stay until New Year's Eve.
