Santa's Arrival

Santa's arrival at EK, East Kilbride

See Santa arrive on Saturday 16th November at 11am

See Father Christmas parade through the centre with his elves to open his grotto for the festive season. Santa's journey will start at Debenhams, and he'll continue on foot through Centre West and Plaza onto The Hub.    

Santa will park his sleigh outside the entrance at Debenhams; where his reindeer will take a well-earned rest before they return to the North Pole. Shoppers will be able to meet the reindeer and talk to their professional reindeer handlers outside the main entrance until 1.30pm. 

Customers can visit Santa for FREE in The Hub every weekend from 16th November and from 19th-24th December.
