The Cathedral Quarter Christmas Grotto

Part of QUADmas

Step into a realm of pure enchantment as you enter the extraordinary Christmas grotto, located in Derby QUAD’s Gallery! Brace yourself for the mesmerising “Northern Lights” experience, an immersive 360-degree environment that transports you straight to Santa’s magical grotto in the North Pole. While you wait in joyful anticipation to meet Santa himself, capture the magic at our specially designed photo station, perfect for those cherished family snapshots. And when the moment arrives, venture into the Cathedral Quarter Grotto for an audience with Santa, who eagerly awaits each child with a heartwarming arts-based gift.

Don’t miss the chance to be a part of this extraordinary celebration – come and create Christmas magic with us.
