Dobbies, the UK's leading garden centre, is announcing its highly anticipated Santa's Grotto and Quiet Grotto enchanting experience in its Boston store, designed to bring families together to celebrate the magic of Christmas.

Whether little ones are meeting Santa and his elves for the first time, or it’s a cherished annual  tradition, attendees can enjoy festive fun at Dobbies this Christmas.  

Children will be welcomed by Santa’s elves who will take them through a Christmas tree forest spotting magical  characters along the way, before making a special item to take home. Once they’ve spent time with Santa’s elves,  they’ll get the chance to meet Santa Claus himself. Santa will greet children, share some Christmas magic, hear  their wishes, and hand them a gift to take home.  

The Quiet Grotto is also running this year at Dobbies’ Boston store, thoughtfully designed with sound and visual  elements to create a relaxed atmosphere for children with additional needs. Quiet Grottos will be available from  2.30pm on Friday 8 December. 

Families with canine companions in Boston are in for a treat as they can bring their four-legged friends to meet  Santa. Starting from 2 December, dog owners are invited along to a Santa Paws experience where they’ll receive  adorable pet-friendly gifts from Santa. 

Sarah Murray, who develops Dobbies’ festive line up, knows just how magical Christmas is for all the family. She said: "For every child, meeting Santa is a treasured highlight of the season. At Dobbies we're dedicated to creating  a Santa's Grotto experience that resonates with every member of the community. We're thrilled that this year's  grotto experiences in Boston will continue to spark the enchantment of Christmas for all families who join us." 

If families would like to preserve a cherished memory of the day, there’s the chance to add on a professional  photograph at the time of booking, or add on the day from £5 for a digital image and £7 for a photo booklet.

Tickets are priced at £11.99 per child for Santa’s Grotto and Santa’s Quiet Grotto experiences, and Santa Paws is  priced at £6.99 per dog. A non-refundable donation for Teenage Cancer Trust is also available at the time of  booking.
