Don’t grow up, it’s a trap. And for festive fans, the bosses at House of Fraser, Manchester have answered our prayers. Because this Thursday (14th December), for one evening only, they’ll be opening Santa’s Grotto and inviting us grown ups in. YES, this is not a drill.


You’ll walk in a winter wonderland before meeting the man himself, snapping a selfie and getting a gift OFC. And the fun don’t stop there. You’ll be whisked away to an apres-ski area where your ticket will get you three gin cocktails (always a win).



The bosses at HOF said they wanted to test the idea after lots of customer demand, and if it goes down well, could become an annual thing (we vote yes). So if you wanna pop down, tickets cost £15 including allllll the fun above and can be booked by calling 0161 8323414. The fun kicks off at 6:30 until 9pm.
