Underbelly and Mr and Mrs Santa Claus of 1 Forest Drive, Reindeer Road, North Pole NP47 2020 have announced the launch of an experience to bring the magic of Santa’s grotto online.

Santa’s Digital Grotto, Edinburgh Christmas, Underbelly

As everyone prepares for what will sadly be a socially distanced Christmas, Underbelly (Edinburgh’s Christmas and Christmas in Leicester Square, London) and Santa Claus will be collaborating to bring Santa’s Grotto to children in their very own homes from the 23rd November until the 24th December.

Santa At Home will be offering children of all ages, from all over the world, the unique opportunity to meet Santa in a personalised and private Zoom session live from the North Pole. 

With up to six children being able to meet Santa in any one session and unlimited family members can also join a session to watch their children, grandchildren, cousins, nieces or nephews meet Santa live from the North Pole. Mr Claus will know every child by name and will also have inside information on them to ensure the experience is completely personalised to the children that he meets. With the consent of parents, you can even have the experience recorded and send a video file for free.

Each session will last up to 12 minutes and is a unique and personalised experience for children, parents, friends and extended family alike. 

Santa at Home will be supporting  Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSH Charity) and The Brain Tumour Charity this Christmas. All customers will be given the option at checkout to make a donation, with all proceeds being split equally between the two charities, supporting their invaluable work.

Talking about the news, Mr Santa Claus said: “I’ve been elf-isolating for hundreds of years and absolutely nothing is going to stop me from zooming down your chimney on Christmas Eve – I am a key worker after all!  I’m also really excited to be able to meet all you wonderful children via the tippedy-tap computers, tablets and other gadgets this year.  My new online grotto will allow me to meet up to six children at any one time and all the people you most care about can join in the magic as well.”

Santa at Home will run from the 23rd November until the 24th December. For more information and to book visit: http://www.santaathomeofficial.com/
