Bootle Strand Grotto

Lots and lots of children came to Bootle Strand to meet Father Christmas this December. Mons Square in the Strand Shopping Centre was transformed into an amazing Dickensian Christmas wonderland. In addition to the Grotto, there were a few extra Christmassy surprises. Children and families visits didn’t end after seeing Santa, they were instead transported back in time to the very first Christmas where they heard the story from the point of view of the inn keeper.


Annie Spiers, Creative Director at In Another Place said “We were so excited to add our own flavour to the Bootle Strand Grotto this year and we were delighted to see whole families engaging in the nativity story
