Christmas tickets now on sale for Believe experience at St David’s Cardiff

Believe, the enchanted Christmas grotto experience, is returning to St David’s Cardiff with tickets on sale this week.

The wondrous Christmas grotto launched at St David’s Cardiff for the first time in 2021 to sell-out success and, due to popular demand, is set to make a return this year. Believe will open daily from Friday November 25, right up until Christmas Eve, Saturday December 24.

Believe invites guests into a mystical cavern to meet McJingles, one of Santa’s most trusted elves, along with Norbert, his magical reindeer friend. After hearing Norbert’s story, the children will take part in a festive craft activity decorating their own bag of magical reindeer food to take home with them. Families will then be invited into Santa’s captivating grotto where little ones will meet Santa before receiving a gift, as well as having the opportunity to capture the memorable moment on camera.

Helen Morgan, Centre Director of St David’s Cardiff, commented: “The Believe Christmas grotto was fantastically received last year and, with a few magical enhancements, we’re excited to announce that it’s back for 2022. What we love about Believe is that it offers a full festive, interactive experience as well as the chance to meet Santa himself which will create Christmas memories to treasure forever. As it’s likely to be incredibly popular – the event sold out in 2021 – we’re advising guests to book early to guarantee their visit.”

Believe will be located on the Lower Grand Arcade, near the LEGO Store in St David’s. Tickets, costing £6 per child and £13 per adult (plus an online booking fee), are on sale now.
