Lions Club of Bridgend

Santa's Grotto



The Grotto has had to be cancelled again for 2021, but we hope to be back in 2022.

However there will be an opportunity to talk to Santa and take a photograph in the Indoor Market on the 11th & 18th December 2021.


Every Saturday from the 23rd November until the 14th December 2019 we assisted Santa in his grotto at Carnegie House (the old library), Wyndham Street, Bridgend.


Santa's Grotto 2014

On each Saturday visitors were able to book from 10 am until 4 pm for that day (subject to availability) or one of the upcoming days. On-line booking is highly recommended in 2019 to avoid disappointment. Further details of this will follow nearer the time.

We would like to thank everyone who supported our Luxury Christmas Hamper Raffle, kindly sponsored by Sainsbury's. We are most grateful for the generous help given by Bridgend Town Council and The Pheasant.

In the picture with Santa is Natalie Murphy (senior raffle elf) and Lion President Tony Gates.

The cost of entry was £6.00 per child which included a quality gift. Visitors could take their own photographs and there were free craft tables for children, a bran tub and some Christmas gift stalls.

Santa is pictured below in his Grotto with some of his young visitors.
