Santa Claus arriving at Middleton Grange Shopping Centre, in a previous year.

Santa had to stay in Lapland last year due to coronavirus restrictions which meant his popular grotto had to be cancelled.

His arrival has become a popular event in the build up to Christmas for many with hundreds of people usually attending to catch a glimpse of him.

The grotto will be open from 10am to 3pm on selected days until Thursday, December 23, and is £3 a visit.
