Santa Claus searches for little boy or girl to open Lincoln grotto

Do you know someone who’s bursting at the seams to celebrate Christmas?

He’s making a list, he’s checking it twice. Gonna find out who’s naughty or nice. Santa Claus is coming to town, and he’s teaming up with the Waterside Shopping Centre and The Lincolnite to find a guest of honour to open his Lincoln grotto!

Lincoln’s only city-centre Santa’s Grotto is returning to the Waterside on Saturday, November 30, and we want to find a young person to start the countdown to Christmas, welcome Santa and open his grotto.

If you know a little boy or girl who just can’t wait until Christmas Day, then send their details to [email protected] along with an explanation as to why they deserve to be the Waterside’s guest of honour on opening day.

The winning child will be chosen by The Lincolnite and the centre’s management team on November 21.

As well as cutting the ribbon to officially open the grotto, the guest of honour will meet Father Christmas and receive several presents from the big man himself.

Two other entrants will also receive free entry into the grotto, which is open every day until Christmas Eve.

If competitions aren’t your thing, then you can book your audience with Santa online here. Tickets cost £6.
