SANTA'S magic grotto is set to return to Ferryhill.

Enter CIC - a social enterprise which uses creative and performing arts to help young and aspiring, as well as professional, industry performers reach their full potential - has announced it will be bringing the experience to The Enter Centre, in Ferryhill, on December 15, 16 and 17.

Enter CIC grottos have a specific theme each year with children receiving an interactive theatre performance with gifts as well as getting to meet Santa himself.

The company has received some funding from the Four Together Area Action Partnership and Councillor Brian Avery to support the initiative.

Enter CIC staff will soon be working hard to transform The Enter Centre into a "captivating and spell-binding venue" ready for the arrival of Santa Claus.

The experience will be held every 20 minutes from 10am.

Tickets cost £10 for one child and accompanying adult or £15 for two children and adult. To book or for more information visit or call 01740-655437.
