Come and see Santa

When Santa isn't busy preparing for the big day he'll be coming to visit us here at intu Derby on specific dates for good boys and girls to meet. He's told us there'll even be special Playmobil gifts for all the children who come to see him this Christmas. Families can have their photo taken with Santa and purchase it from our happy elves as a photo gift.
