SANTA will be in his Grotto in Braehead in the run-up to Christmas as festive celebrations go ahead.

From Thursday, 11 November, Christmas celebrations will begin in Renfrewshire as Rudolf parks the sleigh on the Braehead boardwalk.

Organisers promise Santa's Grotto, a funfair, rides and festive food for the children to enjoy.

For the adults, there will be stalls, buskers, an undercover bar and Vinci Cafe, which welcome everyone between 11am and 7pm every day until Christmas Eve.

Peter Beagley, Braehead’s centre director said: “We all missed out on our usual Christmas fun last year because of the coronavirus restrictions, but we’re back with a bang to make up for it this year.

“We’ve got all the Christmas you want at Braehead and we can’t wait to see the excitement on the children’s faces when they meet Santa in his grotto and enjoy all the fun of the festive funfair.

“So let’s make up for last year and meet up with family and friends and have a real Merry Christmas at Braehead.”
