Banner photo for the news story 'We wave Santa off... for now!'

As we wave Santa and his elves off and close the doors to our Grotto for another year, we are delighted that so many children have been able to enjoy this magical experience.

HBBC, Hinckey BID and town centre businesses were delighted to host this lovely visitor experience, giving local parents, carers and children the opportunity of a visit to Santa for a small fee of just £3. Everyone got to meet the man himself and enjoy a little special time with him. If you've taken a photo during your visit, we would love to see it! Please share it to our Facebook page.

Please make sure to follow us on Facebook or check out our website from time to time. We regularly publish details of what is happening in the town centre, making sure you never miss an event again!

Merry Christmas everyone. Having left Hinckley, Santa is now busy sorting lists and scheduling deliveries to all of the children he met here. Not many days to go!
