Summer festivals and fireworks night might be two of the main draws at Ally Pally in any calendar year. But there’s also plenty going on during the winter months. This year, Ally Pally has focused its efforts on a Santa’s Grotto. Here, kids can meet (and snap a photo with) Father Christmas himself. The Grotto is open 10 am–6 pm, and spaces fill up fast.
