Santa Claus made quite the impression when he arrived at centre:mk on Friday afternoon - with a magical rooftop entrance in Queens Court!
Children excitedly assembled themselves to catch their first glimpse of the man in the red suit, who then made his way to the Grotto in Middleton Hall, together with his pals from Dancebox studios and Heart FM.
The interactive Christmas experience will let children make reindeer food before meeting the Santa, and for the first time ever he will be joined by his new friend, Norbert the baby reindeer puppet.
For the 2017 festive season the centre will be raising money for AGE UK by selling magical Christmas glasses - pop them on and the wearer will see reindeers in every light throughout the centre, and when they get home children will see reindeers in their Christmas tree lights too!
Santa will be at the Grotto until Christmas Eve.
