Christmas Grotto

BURGESS HILL DISTRICT LIONS are pleased to announce that Father Christmas has returned to a brand new grotto that has been built by his helpers at South Downs Nurseries.

He arrived at South Downs Nurseries, in Hassocks, on Wednesday 23rd November 2016 for their late night shopping event. Every penny he helps to raise goes to Burgess Hill District Lions Club who will ensure it benefits local good causes.

Santa was met by his little helpers, the friendly elves, before taking his seat in a specially constructed grotto inside South Downs Nurseries where he was busy until Christmas. 

The popular Hassocks attraction was decked out in a blaze of seasonal colour, with decorations of every conceivable kind and a walk-in Light Show boasting an unbeatable range of illuminated figures from angels and snowmen, to Father Christmas, reindeer and trees.

Santa was at the Grotto every Saturday & Sunday from 26th November till 24th December 2016 as well as other special times as follows:

Special Shopping Evening Wednesday 23rd November 5:30pm - 8:30pm
