SANTA IS COMING TO NEWHAVEN HIGH STREET

November 9th, 2018.



Father Christmas will be opening a grotto in Newhaven High Street in December. He is taking over the A&N Events shop from December the 1st.


Newhaven Town Council and A&N Events are building a grotto using film set effects, props and backdrops, to completely transform the former sweet shop into the snowy home of Santa.

This completely free event will give children and families the chance to meet Santa, take photos in Santa's sleigh and enjoy the festive surroundings.

A spokesman for A&N explained: “Visiting Father Christmas is a very important part of Christmas and unfortunately, with the rise in the cost of living and some families relying on food banks and other support, many children would miss out. So the proposal to run a free grotto was agreed and it’s now believed to be the only completely free professional Santa’s grotto in the UK. Something we are very proud to be bringing to Newhaven.

"The grotto plan has been well received and with sponsors and charitable donations assisting with the costs involved, it is set to become a major talking point and a positive addition to Newhaven over the coming years.

“Everyone is getting behind it and Newhaven Chamber of Commerce has kindly donated £500 towards gifts for the children. It really is going to be an amazing experience.”


Santa at Newhaven High Street can be found on Facebook HERE and will run from the 1st to the 23rd of December.
