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. 


“Our Santa’s grotto is a twist on the traditional set ups you may have been to before. Ours is less about what you would like for Christmas and more about giving back to the world.”


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.


“Here at Kitchen Garden Cafe, we are really passionate about saving wildlife. It is something that has been particularly important to me for years and we have support many wildlife charities.”


“We are trying to show people that you can have Christmas but also care about the planet and animals around you.”- Tracey, Kitchen Garden. 

Not only will you be able to meet our singing 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.


“What could be more special at Christmas than getting to know about nature and what’s around you?”


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

Or you could get your hands on two FREE tickets if you enter yourself into Kitchen Garden Shop’s competition!!
