This Christmas everyone gets their time with Santa.

We’re offering a Sensitive Santa experience with the help of The Children's Autism Foundation so that families can visit our Christmas wonderland and have their photo taken in a relaxed environment, tailored to children with sensory challenges.

These calm and comfortable photography sessions are run before stores open, when the centre is quieter, to create a relaxed and sensory-friendly Santa experience.

With a booked time slot and no need to wait in a queue, families can take their time to enjoy their moment with Santa.

During your session, please let us know if there’s anything we can do to help make your experience easier and we will accommodate any special requests as best we can.

To get a feel for the experience, we hope you enjoy the short film below that tells the story of one family’s experience with Sensitive Santa. We have also developed a social story to help children with autism understand what they might expect from a Sensitive Santa visit.
