For a truly magical experience this Christmas, bring your children to meet Santa in his Grotto outside WH Smiths in the Upper Market Hall.
Santa wants to hear what the children of Barnsley want for Christmas, and he has some special reindeer food to give them to help make sure that Rudolph and his friends are well fed during their busy Christmas Eve.
Photographs are available, like this one featuring Luke Munro from Gawber, who's 4. He told Santa he wanted World Peace!!....
...only kidding, he's after Iron Man's remote controlled Audi R8 like every other 4-year-old!!
Santa will be in his Grotto from 11.30 until 3pm, every Friday and Saturday until 18th December.
Price: £5 including a gift and goodies.
