Christmas Craft Station

The magic begins at the Christmas Craft Station when the Station Master and his merry elves, Pippin and Noel the train driver greet you at Platform 42.
Pop along for some festive fun, stories and craft making every Saturday!

The Christmas Craft Station

Following on from the success of last year’s Xmas activities where we held events across every weekend from light switch on to Xmas eve, we are doing the same again this year!

The Christmas Craft Station will be installed in the former Joules unit, creating a destination, Platform 42, to link in with this year's grotto theme. A train track will run the length of the mall from the grotto to the event.

Various activities will be on offer every Saturday from 18th November to 23rd December.

Next, Santa’s guests will journey to the Christmas Craft Station for a variety of activities from Christmas card making to making your own 3D Polar Express Train – and of course all children are invited to write a letter to Santa.

Pippin the Elf has a hidden library of books that have been left on the platform over many years in her Lost & Found Book Corner, giving children and adults a chance to enjoy some quiet time or story-telling.

Finally, it’s time for a Santa Selfie in the Polar Platform Photobooth – get out those silly faces, strike a pose and take these memories home to treasure.
