Both Foyleside and Richmond Shopping Centres will welcome Santa back to the city on Saturday 11th November, where he will stay throughout the festive season.
Foyleside Shopping Centre is preparing to kick off the Christmas season as they welcome back Santa Claus to his magical Foyleside Grotto on 11.30am, and the elves have been busy getting the Grotto ready for his arrival.
Santa’s return to his Foyleside Grotto is the beginning of six weeks of festive Foyleside activity to mark the busy Christmas season. Black Friday will take place in the centre on November 24, with bargain deals and rock-bottom prices, perfect timing for bagging early Christmas gifts. Local schools will also be performing throughout December, entertaining shoppers with their melodies, and once again Foyleside will host its annual ‘Shopmobility Night’, featuring discounts, deals, and much more. Plus, stay tuned for details on Foyleside’s popular ‘Breakfast with Santa’ competition, which will be launching very soon.
