Santa is coming to Erneside

Join us Saturday 30th November from 1-4PM for Santa’s arrival party and Erneside’s 30th Birthday celebrations.

Activities include:

  • Roadshow with Q radio
  • Birthday celebrations and giveaways
  • Reindeer food workshop
  • Christmas characters
  • Meet Santa as he enters his grotto
  • Facepainting and more!

To celebrate Erneside’s 30th anniversary, this year Santa’s grotto will be run in aid of various local charities. 

“Christmas is a time of year when local charities need support and we want to give back to the community as we mark 30 years of Erneside in Enniskillen this year.

Christmas is an exciting and enjoyable time for families, however it can also be a stressful and costly time for parents.

As children, one of our lasting memories is the joy of meeting Santa, however the cost of a present and photograph is another expense for parents at this time of year.” said Centre Manager Jim Masterson.

This year, Erneside is offering a free visit to Santa’s grotto and children will receive a good behaviour certificate from Santa. Parents will have the opportunity to take their own photographs and enter Erneside’s Facebook competition for the chance to win a weekly £100 of Erneside gift vouchers.

Santa’s helpers will be volunteer’s from each of the local charities. Donations will be gratefully received to help those less fortunate this Christmas, so please show your appreciation with a small donation on your visit.

“We hope this initiative will help raise money for worthwhile local charities, provide lasting memories for all the family and help lessen some of the stresses on families at this time of the year,” said Centre Manager Jim Masterson.

To enhance the festive atmosphere, Erneside will have local schools and choirs providing entertainment over the festive period. There are still some dates available so if you would like to perform in the centre please contact

Bring all the family along to Erneside this Christmas, visit Santa, do some good for your local community and enjoy the atmosphere created by our very own local talent!
