Saturday 17 November
Eastgate will start the countdown to Christmas on Saturday 17 November when Santa arrives to open his grotto. His magnificent Cairngorm reindeer will be on display in a pen outside.
The fun packed afternoon starts at 12pm with a host of festive walkabout entertainment. Families can meet Elvish, a pair of Elvis impersonating elves on dodgem cars, and Christmas Nutkins, two charming squirrels who are nuts about the festive season.
There will be stiltwalking Christmas trees and a duo of bouncing reindeers too. Plus, our favourite octogenarians Granny Turismo are back to entertain the crowds with their shopping trolley dance routines.
