Santa Claus may have his diary full on Christmas Eve, but the big man in red is taking time to come to Carrigart on 23rd December for a festive fundraiser!

Local woman Nuala McGurk has organised an unmissable family fun day in aid of the North West Simon Community.

All proceeds will go towards helping the homeless in Donegal and surrounding areas at Christmas.

Santa Experience takes place in The Carrigart Hotel on Sunday 23rd December 2018 from 12-6pm.

Families are invited to come and visit Santa and his Elves in his magical grotto and meet special guest Olaf.

Santa Experience Carrigart

With the help of Santa’s Elves, each child will make their own Christmas decoration, write a letter to Santa to remind him of their wishes, decorate a delicious cookie baked by Mrs Claus herself at the North Pole, and enjoy a hot chocolate while Santa’s helper reads “The Night Before Christmas”.

Then… a visit to Santa himself where each child will receive a gift and a photo.

There will be facepainting, Christmas movies, music, dancing and entertainment provided (allowing time for grown-ups to enjoy some of the delicious food and drink available in The Carrigart Hotel!)

At 6pm, there will be a very magical performance by the talented magicianDylan Murray, winner of Derry’s Got Talent and Dublin Talent Variety Show 2017. Parents and grandparents are welcome to sit back and enjoy some festive cheer as kids and grown ups alike are mesmerised by Dylan’s show.

Tickets are €9.50 per child, or only €25 for a family of 3 children! (No charges for adults!). All proceeds in aid of the North West Simon Community.

Please note that spaces are limited and must be booked in advance! For booking details visit the Facebook event page here: Event: The Santa Experience in Aid Of The North West Simon Community
