The Trafford Centre Has Been Transformed Into A Magical Peter Rabbit Christmas Grotto


The Trafford Centre has announced the theme for this years Christmas grotto and it’s so heartwarmingly nostalgic I can barely type. Beatrix Potter’s most loved character, Peter Rabbit, will be brought to life in an immersive Christmas grotto experience that will be outside the Great Hall throughout the festive period.

From November 14 to December 24 Peter Rabbit will welcome visitors into his cosy burrow before sending them off to meet his friends and explore the amazing Beatrix Potter-themed winter woodland.

Kids will be able to search Squirrel Nutkin’s trail of Christmas acorns to find his secret Christmas dinner stash, decorate their own Christmas biscuit with Jemima Puddle-duck all while keeping their eyes peeled for that cunning Mr. Tod! Will you be brave enough to join him in his twinkly lair and take a peep inside his cooking pot?

Visitors will then set out on an enchanting journey to meet Santa, where they will have the  opportunity to take home a family photograph with him, as a memento of the special visit.
