Festive fun at Dobbies’ Preston store Garden Centre launches 2022 Christmas events programme

Dobbies, the UK’s leading garden centre retailer, is gearing up to create a Christmas to remember for customers in Preston and announces a magical line up of great-value festive events to get the whole family excited for the season ahead, with booking now open.

Santa’s Grotto is back and better than ever, with families having the opportunity to take part in an interactive experience in the Preston store. Attendees will be greeted by Santa’s elves to walk through the snowy woodland, spotting reindeer, rabbits and more, as well as helping to pack Santa’s sleigh. They’ll then spend time with Santa and receive a special gift to take home. Families can opt in to purchase a photograph with Santa, creating memories to last forever.

Dobbies’ Quiet Grottos will also be available on 9 December. This experience is designed to help support children with additional needs, with sound and visual elements adapted to reduce anxiety.

If you’re looking to get the whole family involved, Dobbies’ Preston store will also offer a Santa Paws grotto experience. Dog lovers across Preston have the chance to bring their pups to see Santa, with a special doggie gift and photo opportunity available. Children’s tickets can be added, for a full family experience.

The garden centre is also hosting its ever-popular Santa’s Breakfast experience, perfect for families and children under 10 years old. Breakfast options are available for both adults and children, including vegetarian and lighter options, with food, fun activities and a gift from Santa all included in the children’s great-value ticket price.

Santa’s Afternoon Tea will be taking place in Preston and is a great opportunity to get friends and family together. Guests can spend some quality time with Santa, and enjoy a delicious selection of savoury and sweet treats, including freshly-made sandwiches, muffins and scones. Santa will also get all little helpers involved in some activities and games.

Dobbies’ Partnership and Events Manager, Sarah Murray, said: “Christmas is all about getting the family together and spending quality time with your loved ones. At Dobbies we want to give families an experience to remember and unforgettable memories to cherish for years to come. Nothing is more magical than Christmas time, and our interactive festive events in Preston will help bring the season to life for the entire family.”
