SANTAS WILDLIFE GROTTO

.

.

.

Have you visited Santa’s Grotto in Kings Heath yet? If you’re looking for a festive activity to do with the little ones, then head down to Kitchen Garden Cafe’s very VERY special grotto (17 York Road) before Santa has to scoot off back to the North Pole for his Christmas Eve rounds! The busy elves at Kitchen Garden have created an immersive wonderful wildlife Christmas grotto for the whole family to enjoy. 

Tickets for the grotto are only £6, and this includes a donation to a wildlife charity of your choice. The experience includes exploring the beautifully decorated grotto, inspired by nature, sitting down with the singing Santa and having a chat with him about which animal you love and would like to help to protect and save. After learning about nature from Santa, your little one will also walk away with a goodie bag that includes a nature-inspired present made by a local artist and lots of fun fact sheets and information about how you can help your local wildlife.

Not only will you be able to meet Santa in his special wildlife grotto, but you’ll also be contributing to saving the local wildlife and raising awareness of how to look after our lovely planet. A percentage of each ticket will be donated to The Hedgehog Preservation Society, Amphibian or the Reptile Conservation Trust & The Wildlife Trust. 

If you would like to attend, tickets must be bought in advance from the Kitchen Garden Shop. 

 

Opening times are 

Tuesday @ 11am - 1pm 

Wed / Thurs / Fri @ 2pm - 5pm 

Sat @ 3pm - 5pm

KINGS HEATH TRAVELLING POST BOX 

To celebrate the most wonderful time of the year, we thought we’d add some fun to the festive season by bringing back the Travelling Christmas Post Box back to our beloved Kings Heath.

Writing a letter to Santa is a childhood tradition that has been an integral part of Christmas since time began. Not only is it a great way to get creative, but it is also the perfect opportunity for mums, dads, aunties, uncles or grandparents to spend some quality time with the family during this magical season!

.

For many children, the focus of the letter is their Christmas Wish List, but we would love parents to encourage their children to be more personal and tell Santa everything and anything about what they love most about Kings Heath!  

The Travelling Christmas Postbox will be gracing Kings Heath with its presence from Wednesday the 11th December through to Christmas Eve. You can track the latest location of the postbox by keeping your eyes on the Enjoy Kings Heath Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (@EnjoyKingsHeath).

.

Remember to address all letters to Santa Claus at the North Pole, Lapland. No stamp is required!  

PLUS Santa will pick 3 winners that will be announced in the New Year and contacted directly to claim their special chocolatey prize.
