Visit Father Christmas and meet Norbert the magical reindeer at the Trafford Centre’s Reindeer Lodge Christmas experience.

This new and enchanting experience, which has been carefully risk assessed to be COVID-19 secure, is open from 17 November – 24 December.

Find it on the Upper Level next to the Main Dome.

Sprinkle some magic on the festive season with a visit to the Trafford Centre’s warm and cosy Reindeer Lodge, as you prepare to journey North to meet Father Christmas.

Children will first meet the loveable Norbert, an adorable young reindeer who longs to lead the sleigh on Christmas Eve and wants to share a very magical secret of his own!

Before meeting Father Christmas, children are invited to gather some magical reindeer food and take it home to sprinkle outside on Christmas Eve to help Norbert’s reindeer friends fly the sleigh.

Father Christmas will be waiting in his twinkly, cosy cabin; little ones can approach the front of his sleigh at a safe two-metre distance to say hello and tell him their Christmas wishes, before having their photo taken and receiving a gift.

The experience has been carefully risk assessed and designed in line with COVID-19 safety measures, including hand sanitising stations, maximum capacity limits and regular cleaning of the experience itself. Adults and children over 11 must wear a face covering.
