Christmas at Westfield this year
It’s official: Christmas is coming, and we can already taste the mince pies. While this year has been unlike any other, we are committed to making sure your Christmas experience is safe and magical. That’s why, in line with health and government advice, we’ll be reimagining some of our much-loved Christmas experiences, including Santa photography at Westfield Newmarket. Here’s what you need to know.
Introducing Westfield's 2020 Christmas video
Not all Christmas elves wear red and green, some wear hi-vis vests. Our new Christmas video reveals the secrets behind the magic, providing a taste of all that goes into making Christmas happen at Westfield Newmarket. Check it out below.
While you won’t be able to sit on Santa’s knee this year, he’ll still be on his trusty red throne, with families positioned in front of Santa’s chair.
Contactless booking and payments mean customers can plan ahead and book online this year, with physically distanced waiting bays allotted to Santa's nice list (reserved appointments). We strongly encourage booking your Santa photography session in advance, as walk-ins will be limited. View the variety of photo packages available and book here now to secure a time that is convenient for you.
Sensitive Santa will also make a return this year, so that families can visit our Christmas wonderland and have their photo taken in a relaxed environment, tailored to children with sensory challenges or those that require some extra time. We will also be offering Pet Photography, where you will be able to hold your two, four or even eight-legged family member and be photographed with Santa.
