Children got the opportunity to meet a very special guest in Bury St Edmunds today as Father Christmas and his elves arrived in the town centre.

The log cabin grotto is situated at Charter Square in the Arc shopping centre and children flocked to see Santa and tell him what they wanted for Christmas this year.

Our Bury St Edmunds, Bury Town Council and the Arc shopping centre have worked together to make Santa’s visit to Bury St Edmunds possible.

As well as Santa’s grotto, later in December the Arc will also be hosting dodgem cars and a carousel to entertain Christmas shoppers.

Admission to the grotto will be by ticket only and bookings can be made in advance, although a number of limited places will be available to buy on the day.

Tickets can be booked now at www.ourburystedmunds/christmas. The dodgems and carousel will be pay on arrival.
