Santa Saturdays for Sittingbourne Shoppers

The Forum Shopping Centre in Sittingbourne is delighted to reveal its programme of festive entertainment and activities over the coming weeks.

The centre’s ‘Santa Saturdays’ will be returning for a second year, and feature face painters, arts and crafts sessions, choir performances, and of course special visits from Santa and his elves. 
The fun starts on Saturday 25th November when The Forum Shopping Centre will be hosting Sittingbourne town’s official light switch on.

The fun starts on Saturday 25th November when Santa is set to make a special appearance to the centre where he will be on hand spreading a little festive cheer to all Sittingbourne youngsters until 4pm.  

The local community is encouraged to visit the centre from 11am where the well-known Christmas Grinch from ‘Whoville’ will also be visiting The Forum throughout the day. Youngsters are challenged with the task of cheering up Mr Grinch and, if they succeed, will receive a sweet treat. There will be a free festive arts and crafts table available for little shoppers throughout the day where they can create Christmas gifts and cards for friends and family. 

The festivities continue every Saturday from 2nd December until 23rd December when Santa will be at the centre to meet and greet with Sittingbourne’s good boys and girls. A free craft table and face painter will also be available for children to transform into their favourite Christmas characters including Santa’s cheeky elves and Rudolph.

All ‘Santa Saturday’ events will run from 11am until 4pm courtesy of the Spirit of Sittingbourne official sponsors of The Forum Shopping Centre’s Christmas activity.
