Bluewater's grotto and ice rink set to open

By Angela Cole

Bluewater shopping centre was the first off the mark to hold its Christmas lights switch-on in Kent, with Father Christmas doing the honours last week.

This week the centre's grotto and outdoor ice rink both open on Thursday, November 15.

Your festive journey to see Santa and his elves in The Village begins with a traditional Christmas story presented in 4D, meet Reggie the animatronic reindeer, followed by crafts with Mrs Claus and then meeting Santa. The grotto is open until Christmas Eve.
