WORCESTER families have the chance to meet Santa Claus at Crowngate Shopping Centre in Worcester city centre.

The man himself will be meeting families in Toytown, in a grotto at the front of the store, every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from now until Christmas.

Crowngate Shopping Centre has been getting into the Christmas spirit, installing an animatronic polar bear band near to Chapel Walk, which has been entertaining families whilst shopping in the city centre.

Toytown is one of the largest independent toy retailers in the UK and Northern Ireland.
