Visit Our Traditional Christmas Grotto - open daily until Christmas Eve!
Posted on Nov 01, 2019
Father Christmas’ traditional grotto is now open daily until Christmas Eve.
Derek Moran from Channel 5's 'Milkshake', starring as Dandini in this year's panto, Cinderella at The Central Theatre, Chatham, will welcome Father Christmas to his grotto at 2pm, on Saturday 16th November. He will be joined by kmfm’s mid-morning show presenter Andy Walker, to help officially countdown the launch to the opening of Hempstead Valley’s grotto.
The traditional grotto features many enchanting characters including reindeers, set amongst a towering Christmas tree bedecked in fairy lights and beautiful rose gold, silver, pink and purple baubles.
Entrance to the grotto to visit Father Christmas costs £5 per child and includes a wrapped gift. There is no charge for accompanying adults.
Pre-book your visit here (£1.50 booking fee applies): www.bookfatherchristmas.co.uk/hempsteadvalley
Professional photography is available to purchase from the elves.
Please allow plenty of time to queue and arrive at least 30 minutes before the grotto is scheduled to close.

Father Christmas is very popular at Hempstead Valley, this is especially so during busy times at weekends and during the school holidays. We advise that you arrive at least 30 minutes before the grotto is due to close. Pre-booking is advisable, however, you can turn up on the day and queue to visit Father Christmas.
