Foyleside Shopping Centre is excited to announce the highly anticipated return of Santa Claus, who will be making a grand entrance on Saturday, November 11th. This year, Santa’s arrival promises to be even more magical, as he will be accompanied by a charming train and sleigh, adding an extra touch of enchantment to the occasion.

Our festive celebration isn’t just about Santa’s arrival; we’ve prepared an array of free activities for the entire family to enjoy. From 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, you can revel in the festivities, including face painting, balloon modelling, engaging Christmas crafts, and so much more. 

Following the spectacular arrival ceremony, Santa’s Grotto will open its doors to welcome all visitors, and throughout the holiday season, the shopping centre will host a series of special events every weekend in the lead-up to Christmas. Be sure to stay informed about all Foyleside’s Christmas events by visiting our website or following us on social media.

In addition to all the festive fun, there’s a chance that we might have a surprise visit from a VERY special guest. As Dr. Seuss once said, “Christmas will always be as long as we stand heart to heart and hand in hand.” So, be ready to stand heart to heart and hand in hand with us, as the magic of the holiday season unfolds at Foyleside Shopping Centre.

Keep an eye out for the Grotto’s opening hours and the detailed schedule of weekend activities, which will be announced soon. It’s time to embrace the holiday spirit, and Foyleside is your destination for making lasting memories this Christmas season!
