The festive season is upon us as Romford’s oldest Santa’s grotto opens for business.

Mercury Mall shopping centre will be welcoming families throughout the Christmas period to meet the man we have all been waiting for - Santa Claus.

He will be looking forward to meeting as many children as he can while he is staying in the Romford area.

He also got a visit from one of the leading actresses in Queen’s Theatre’s pantomime Beauty and the Beast, which will be shown from November 30 - January 7.

Marketing manager Gemma Brooks said: “We’re all delighted that Santa’s magical igloo grotto is open at The Mercury Mall open everyday up until Christmas Eve.

“It’s so lovely to see so many children with smiley happy faces, whether it’s their first time meeting Santa or saying hello after posting off Christmas wish lists, you can’t beat the feel good factor and experience whatever your age!”
