Our Facebook wall has been full of WABers asking for advice on where Santa is having a grotto this year.

We thought it would be useful to do a run down of the grottos and stopping off points we know about.

Feel free to add your own in the comment box below and we will pick up on it.


Pot House Hamlet, Silkstone - every weekend until December 20th. Tickets £6.50 in advance from the Christmas Shop.

Cannon Hall Farm - just a few sittings left for Santa experiences. Booking is now by phone only as it's limited on space.

Cannon Hall - Santa will visit every Saturday and Sunday between 5 and 20 December. £7 per child. Must be prebooked.


Santa will be calling in to Hoyland Library from 4 - 6pm on Friday (November 27). There will be free refreshments and children's crafts.

Barnsley Town Hall - on December 5 there will be a Santa's Grotto, arts and crafts, free facepainting for children and an elf workshop. Runs 12 - 4.
