This December the Bishop Auckland Town Team are once again bringing Santa back to Bishop Auckland.
Children will be invited to come into the Newgate Shopping Centre on Saturday 10th and Saturday 17th December 2022 between 10am and 3pm.
It’s FREE to see Santa and there’s an opportunity to have your photo taken with him. From just £1, you will receive a 6” x 4” colour photo within just a few minutes!
There will be some festive music and FREE face painting for the children.
You will also have the chance to WIN a luxury Christmas hamper in the ‘Christmas Raffle.
For just £1 a ticket you could win a luxury hamper worth over £100 or one of the runner-up prizes!
Tickets will be available to purchase from the Town Team volunteers at both events and the draw will take place on Saturday 17th December at 3:00pm.
Since 2012, the Bishop Auckland Town Team have brought Santa Claus to town. Over the years hundreds of children have enjoyed having their photos taken with him whilst enjoying some festive music and entertainment.
From 2017 to 2019 in partnership with David and Pam Pott we have delivered Advent Windows. 24 shops and businesses in the town take part in which their windows are decorated by either school children or community groups and revealed throughout the month of December.
This compilation video below shows some of the highlights from over the years.
