The magic of Christmas is set to sparkle in Chelsea on Saturday10th November, with a festive celebration like no other. The free event begins from 3pm with an exciting range of activities for both children and families to enjoy.
Head to the arts & crafts marquee for free family-friendly activities, or pop down to Santa’s Christmas Grotto from 5.30pm to meet the season’s most popular individual in the flesh. Enjoy hot popcorn, mince pies or mulled wine whilst listening to Christmas carols led by the singer Natalie Coyle accompanied by the choir of Holy Trinity Church.
There will be horse and carriage rides from Duke of York Square around Sloane Square, and if you look around the Square carefully you may just see some real Reindeer! Remember to wrap up warm because snow will be falling across the Square through the afternoon!
Mr. Claus will be meeting little ones, telling stories, and giving away Christmas sweets to all who visit his cosy workshop. Visitors can make sure Santa remembers their wish list by posting letters in the magical Christmas post-box situated at Duke of York Square.
This year one lucky child can win the chance to create the magic and help turn on the Christmas lights that spectacularly illuminate the square from 5.15pm and open the magical grotto. Your little elf will then be the very first child into Father Christmas’s amazing grotto. Beat that for a magical start to Christmas!

Duke of York Square is delighted that this year’s festive events will be in support of the Princes Foundation for Children & The Arts, who will be helping with many of the fun arts activities on the day. So head on down and start this season with a festive bang, and a magical evening your loved ones will never forget.
