Meet Santa at the Eastleigh Christmas Market
There’s a chance for children to meet Santa Claus this weekend at Eastleigh’s indoor Christmas Market.
He’ll be at the Places Leisure Eastleigh health and fitness centre this Sunday 26 November, from 10am to 3pm, as part of a fun-packed event designed to get everyone in the mood for the festive season – and provide an opportunity to buy unique Christmas merchandise.
As well as meeting and greeting Santa, young ones can create and send him their Christmas list through the post box that (we’re told) wings them straight to his workshop at the North Pole. Not forgetting a fun snowball game on-site.
There’s also an opportunity to buy tickets from just £10 to see the man in red in his own show – the much-loved Father Christmas by Raymond Briggs – at The Berry Theatre from Saturday 9 December. Booking on the day will automatically enter purchasers into a great competition to win money towards future theatre shows.
The market will see as many as 100 independent businesses from Sussex, Hampshire, Dorset and beyond will showcase a tempting range of festive products.
There’s no admission for children under 16 (it’s just £1 for adults) and parking on site is also free.
Places Leisure Eastleigh is in Passfield Avenue, Eastleigh SO50 9NL.
