Santa’s Grotto Hastings

santas grotto meet santa

December 16, 2023 @ 10:00 am 2:00 pm

Bring your tamariki to visit Santa in the Tama Tūranga Huata room this December!

Post your letters to Santa, pop a gift under the Giving Tree for Women’s Refuge, meet the big man – and bring a camera so you have a photo with him in the Grotto.

There’ll be art activities for kids and, on Friday nights, there’ll be local live music! You can also buy slushies for tamariki and cocktails for parents at Cedric’s.

Gifts can be a new Christmas gift for a woman or child, some treats for a family on Christmas Day or a donation of money (https://www.familyvip.org.nz/donate).

Santa is also welcoming tamariki and whānau to his low-sensory grotto, with no music and low lights on:

Monday 11 December, 10am – 2pm or 3pm – 5pm
Thursday 7 December. 3pm till 6pm
Thursday 14 December. 3pm till 6pm
Thursday 21 December, 3pm till 5pm

Bookings are essential for low-sensory sessions. For more information and to book, please phone 06 871 5289.
