The infamous Santa’s Snowflake Grotto returns this year with a traditional Nordic theme. The northern lights will appear on large screens outside the grotto, bringing the magic of Christmas to life. Inside lies the secret realm of snowflakes where children are taken through an enchanting journey through the grotto’s winter wonderland with Santa’s helpers, where they will also have the chance to make their own unique individual snowflakes. Tickets can be purchased from Monday 9thSeptember and the grotto will be welcoming visitors from 21st November to 24th December.

Westfield Stratford City will host the annual Christmas Festival on Saturday 16th of November, a day of festive inspired family fun with live entertainment and free Christmas treats.
