Keep up with Armagh i

A first look around Santa’s magical Gatelodge in Milford


Santa’s Gatelodge in Milford has opened to the public and it looks absolutely fantastic!

Run annually by the Armagh-based charity iCare, the record 22 night run kicked off last night (Friday).

And judging by the smiles on all their faces the lucky first visitors through the doors had a fantastic time.

Santa took up residence for the first evening and will remain at the Gatelodge until December 16.

Visitors are guaranteed a fun-filled family-friendly festive time!

There is so much for all the young ones to do, from designing their own Christmas stars for the tree to baking treats in Mrs Claus’ kitchen, attending elf school and visiting Santa’s workshop and singing Christmas carols.

And of course no visit would be complete without a present from the man himself!

All of the money raised at Santa’s Gatelodge goes directly to the iCare Charity to grant iCare Wishes across the country. iCare is 100% volunteer led with no administrative costs!
