Santa Express

Santa Express Comes to Whitworth

Since Santa Express was such a huge success last year we have decided it will return to the streets of Whitworth for a second year running!  Father Christmas will be travelling through our town in a custom-built sleigh between 5pm and 7pm on Saturday the 18th and Sunday the 19th of December. He will be sledding between Broadley and Shawforth and calling at most of the residential areas on the way driving slowly to allow families to wave as he passes by.  It would be impossible to cover every single street, but the volunteers have worked hard to ensure that you won’t have far to go to see him drive by.

Residents are encouraged to come out and meet Father Christmas as he makes short stops at allocated points to allow children to collect a bag of sweets as a Christmas treat. The sleigh will be stop at local businesses, including Basils, the Red Lion and The Oxford as well as Cowm reservoir where the Whitworth Waterski centre will be decked in Christmas Lights and Bubbles and Brews will be warming people up with delicious hot drinks to go along with the festivities. Watch out on facebook for a Santa Express schedule and posters nearer the time!

Father Christmas wants to see everyone out and waving this year joining in on the festivities after a difficult 18 months.  He would love to see everyone’s Christmas Lights and decorations cheering up the valley.  Please post them on social media with the hashtag #whitworthsantaexpress.

Finally, for anyone wanting to track Father Christmas from stop to stop on either day please download the FollowMee app.
