Santa and his elves will be returning to the Waterside this Christmas.
The grotto will be open from 11am-5pm Monday to Saturday and from 10.30am-4.30pm on Sundays and is located on the Waterside level close to New Look and Superdrug.
This year, you will need to book your visit to see Santa either online at https://www.bookfatherchristmas.co.uk/Waterside, or by using the QR code which will be displayed outside the grotto. Only one family will go into the grotto to see Santa at any one time. We will be offering the opportunity to sanitise your hands before and after visiting Santa.
An audience with Santa costs just £6, plus 50 pence booking fee. Every child receiving a present and parents having the opportunity to purchase additional personalised items.
There’s always lots of preparation to do in the run-up to Christmas, but thankfully the Waterside has several late-night shopping evenings. The Centre will be open until 8pm on Thursday 18th November and 16th and 23rd December.
The Waterside Shopping Centre has been at the heart of Lincoln’s shopping scene since it was opened by Princess Diana in 1992.
The city centre’s only covered shopping mall, the Waterside is home to a fantastic range of retailers offering something for all the family.
Fashion retailers, H&M, Next, New Look, Roman Originals and Yours Clothing sit alongside Lincoln’s only approved Apple reseller Stormfront and telecomms giants O2 and Three. Kids make a bee-line to Smiggle and Claire’s, with everyone taking care of their health and wellbeing at The Body Shop, Grapetree and Superdrug.
With Lincoln Watch Clinic, Savers and Warhammer on the outside of the centre, not to mention the new luxury Goldsmith’s for that special gift and the Lincoln City Football Club store, there really is something for everyone at the Waterside.
And if you’re peckish after after picking up some bargains, then the Waterside won’t disappoint, as you have a choice of Burger King or Caffe Italiano to take a breather and enjoy a bite to eat.
