All aboard the Santaland Express at The Mall Blackburnigum!

The Mall Blackburn is excited to take families on a brand-new magical Christmas adventure for 2021.

Children will journey from Blackburnigum Station, all the way to Yulevik Station to meet Santa at The Christmas Workshop.

From 27th November, right up to Christmas Eve, the Santaland Express will be ready and waiting in The Mall to transport visitors through time and space to meet the big man himself.

Families will be welcomed to a quaint, make-believe festive train station by Station Master Elfo, then it’s all aboard the Santaland Express where music, sound effects and video visuals create the feeling they’re on a magical journey to the Christmas Kingdom.

Carriage doors open into the beautifully decorated Grand Hall where Santa will be waiting to meet and greet each and every child.

Not only does each child enjoy the train journey, meet Santa, and receive a quality gift, they also come away with a novel keepsake train ticket, and parents are welcome to take photos throughout. 

People are being urged to book online to avoid disappointment and enjoy one of the region’s most polished and professional festive experiences.

Loraine Jones, General Manager at The Mall Blackburn said: “We’ve invested heavily in this year’s event because we wanted to fully embrace the magic! 

“We want families to enjoy a really amazing Christmassy experience after the many challenges of the last 18 months.

“The professionalism of the cast and crew is second to none and, as ever, Santa is a sight to behold!

“We’ve worked hard to create a thoroughly enchanting event, that’s also safe and spacious for everyone’s peace of mind. 

“We’ve partnered with Imagination Entertainment on our festive experiences for a number of years and they’re just as committed to quality, which means people of all ages will enjoy this fantastically immersive experience.

“Everyone is looking forward to seeing little ones (and big kids!) get wrapped up in the magic of this bigger-and-better-than-ever Christmas at The Mall Blackburn.”

Tickets are £9.95 per child including a maximum of one parent. Book in advance to avoid disappointment; this looks set to be a sell out!
