Santa Express

Santa Express Comes to Whitworth

**** Due to dangerous pavement and road conditions, Sunday 18th December's Santa Express has been postponed until Wednesday 21st December ******


Following the huge success of the last two years the committee have decided Santa Express will return to the streets of Whitworth for a third consecutive year!

Father Christmas will be travelling through Whitworth in his custom-built sleigh between 6pm and 8pm on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th December. He will be sledding between Broadley and Britannia 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 Father Christmas’s elves 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 at one of our designated Santa Stops (watch out for the signs) where children will be able to collect a bag of sweets as a Christmas treat. If our safety elves allow Father Christmas may be able to make additional short stop along the route.

Father Christmas wants to see everyone out and waving this year joining in on the festivities. He would love to see everyone’s Christmas Lights and decorations cheering up the Valley.

Finally, please send Father Christmas any photos or videos of the event to whitworthtlc@gmail.com or 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.
