Many Christmas festivities may have been put on hold this year due to the pandemic, but the magic of meeting Father Christmas is still shining through.

On December 13, children will still have the opportunity to chat with Christmas’ biggest star, putting a sparkle on this year’s unusual festive proceedings.

You may also want to watch:

The virtual meet-and-greet has been organised by St Albans for Refugees (StAR), with all proceeds going towards their relief efforts.

Held over Zoom, children (and adults!) will have a 15-minute chat with Santa, who will be sat in his cabin in the North Pole. If you’re lucky, he may even show you his world map and tell you how he plans his journey on Christmas Eve!

Slots are secured on a donation basis, with one meet and greet per household – so Father Christmas can catch up with as many children as possible.

To book your meeting with Father Christmas, search StAR’s Father Christmas on eventbrite or click here.
