Here's what some of our visitors thought of last year's event:


"The most magical place. The first time we had been to the hub and so glad it was Christmas time 🎅🏻❤️❄️. The staff (I mean elves!) went above and beyond for the children it truly was perfect. Santa was just fantastic with the kids and a nice addition that the children got to pick the toys themselves. A brilliant selection of great toys. " Nicola Davies, Google review.


"My little ones love this place, and the Santa experience is absolutely brilliant. Wish I could give 6 stars" Andy Webster, Google.


"Thank you Riverside Hub for another fabulous visit. We ALL had a great time (adults and children). The Christmas experience was fun and magical with super presents too. Thank you!" Lynsey Payne, Facebook.

We're running a whole day of S.E.N.D. Christmas Events on Friday 1st December, so if you have a child with special educational needs or disabilities, this would be a great day to book.


This year we're launching a pay-by-instalments option, where you can reserve your tickets for just £25. Find out more.


Christmas sees the Hub at it's very best - festive fun for the whole family.


 We do hope you can join us this year.


Best wishes,

Mr. & Mrs. Elf
