Join us this Christmas in our magical, wintry wonderland! We will be having "Eat, Drink, and Santa Sessions from the 6th of December and the grotto opens on the 11th. Decs up in November.

Christmas at the Steel Cauldron

"Five out of five experience! Wonderful Santa, who had plenty of time to talk with our kids. The staff were so friendly, laid back and welcoming. Very good value for money too. We all left very happy! Thankyou so much!"

We absolutely LOVED having Santa with us last Christmas and after protracted negotiations between our Cauldron Elves and his Christmas Elves we have secured his services for another year.

The whole Cauldron will be decorated to create a magical, winter wonderland.  We can't wait to be open for our first proper Christmas.

  • Eat, Drink and Santa - starting on 6th December the whole family can book to have some food, a drink or two, a few carols and a table visit from Santa. £6 for each child (who receives a £4 scroll to spend at our shop). A wide range of food and drink will be on offer during the session, menus may differ depending on the time of day.

  • Thank You Santa - Join us after Christmas for a very special Santa experience.
