Keep up with Armagh i

Free Santa’s Grotto in Armagh!

SANTA Claus has one again chosen Armagh City Centre as the place to locate his Christmas workshop during December.

Throughout the month, you can visit Santa as he completes his final preparations for Christmas with Mrs Claus and the elves!

Located in the delightfully decorated McCrums Court in Armagh, experience the magical lights and trees as you make your way to see the elves in Santa’s Workshop. Have your photograph taken with Santa, making your own magical Christmas memories to treasure.  

Due to the level of interest in Santa’s workshop, a high demand is expected during busy shopping periods and school holidays; entry is not guaranteed. Simply register at the Mall Shopping Centre during workshop opening hours and then experience the magic of Christmas Wishes. 

Admission is FREE – one of the only free grotto experiences in Northern Ireland – but a donation to Armagh children’s charities is requested.

Make a Christmas Wish…

Remember the true meaning of Christmas and make a Christmas wish for someone special or others less fortunate.  Simply complete the special tag and display it up in Market Square for all to see.
