Rotary Award Winning Santa's Grotto

ROTARY’S award-winning Santa’s Grotto welcomes visitors of all ages to Fleet Walk Shopping Centre for a spectacular sparkling festive wonderland.
This year Father Christmas and his elves have been busy preparing a fantastic grotto full of animated teddy bears who are ready to delight you with their musical performance. Come and see them, meet Father Christmas and take away a super Christmas gift. There is even a special post box where you can deliver a message direct to Santa himself. And this year watch out for our special festive entertainment in the run up to Christmas.
Experience this amazing display which every year welcomes thousands of visitors through its door and equally raises thousands of pounds for local Rotary charities. Last year around 10,000 people came to see Santa and helped to raise more than £5,000 for charity.
The grotto is run entirely by volunteers from the Rotary Club of Babbacombe and St Marychurch, with the support of members of fellow Rotary clubs in the Bay.
The Rotary Santa’s Grotto will officially open on Saturday, November 15th when Santa will ride through Torquay town Centre in an eye-catching classic car to take up residence in Fleet Walk. The grotto will then be open to welcome children and the young-at-heart every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday including late night shopping events. During the week before Christmas, the grotto will open every day up to closing time on Christmas Eve – so please don’t miss Torquay’s traditional festive attraction, delighting generations of families year after year!
