Santa Claus is coming to the Swindon Designer Outlet.

The McArthur Glen retail village in Rodbourne has revealed its plans for the festive season.

Christmas decorations will cover storefronts and the Enchanted Wardrobe experience will be the main attraction from December 2 to 24.

Families can step into the wardrobe and enter a snow-frosted winter wonderland full of storybook characters, craft magic wands, take spectacular photos, keep an eye out for the talking wishing well hidden among the trees, and meet Santa himself.

Half-hour sessions must be booked in advance for £2.50, which can be refunded on arrival or donated to the Outlet’s Charity of the Year partner, Prospect Hospice.

Sessions tailored for people with special educational needs, which are in smaller groups and a quieter environment, will be held at 11am and 11.45am on Tuesdays as well as 11am on Sundays.

McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Swindon centre manager Tina Cumpstey said: “We are delighted to be continuing our community initiative for families with this Christmas event.

“The Enchanted Wardrobe is the perfect experience for families looking for some festive magic while also supporting a valuable cause, Prospect Hospice.

“This is not an event that families are going to want to miss, so make sure to book your tickets now.”
