For Sunday 6th December only, Woodbridge Street Fair day, Barretts will have a Santa’s Grotto in the store!
Woodbridge Street Fair is the only time we open the shop on a Sunday, and it’s a special day for everyone. We put stalls out on the Thoroughfare where our customers can pick up a bargain, and there’s mince pies, mulled wine and spiced apple juice on offer inside.
Last year we had a Santa’s Grotto for the first time ever (long over-due), and it was a huge success. So we’re really looking forward to spreading some Christmas cheer and wonder on this big day for the town. Santa will have his traditional red sleigh parked in the grotto, with two of his lovely elves on hand to help – led by our Chief Elf Vicky. Each child will receive a gender and age specific present, and there will be the opportunity of a photograph with Santa*. Santa will be in the shop from 10.30am to 12.50pm in the morning, and 1.30pm to 3.50pm in the afternoon.
Tickets are £5 per child available from the store from Saturday 28th November and on the day, with £1 of this being donated to St Elizabeths Hospice
So, we hope to see lots of excited children (and parents) in Barretts on Woodbridge Street Fair Day. Even if you’re a bit old for a visit to Santa, our wonderful Christmas displays are well worth a look.
*A photo with Santa can also be emailed out, with the cost being an additional £1 donation into one of our St Elizabeth’s collection tins within the store.
