It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at The Brunel Swindon, with a myriad activities, music and merrymaking to get you in the mood for the coming festive season.

The centre will be buzzing with fun, games and music galore, including the chance to meet Santa in his Christmas Grotto* - the special price of £4 includes meeting Santa, and every child will receive a gift and the opportunity to have their photo taken with the man in red and white.

Other seasonal highlights at the centre include:

  • Post your letters to Santa at the Grotto over the festive period, completely free of charge! Santa will be replying to any letter with a return address
  • Hunt the Naughty Brunel Elves - Elwyn and Ruby will be causing chaos across the centre at various times during the festive period. Can you spot them?
  • The 12 days of Christmas - follow The Brunel Swindon on social media for a chance to win one of 12 very special prizes from centre retailers in the build-up to Christmas
