Christmas wishes do come true….

Christmas wishes do come true…. At the Saddlers Centre this Christmas !

With a Christmas wish list writing station, a sparkly, festive scene with a talking post box and visits from the main man himself… the Saddlers Centre will be ensuring Christmas wishes do come true this December in Walsall!


Children can come any time during the week to write their list, from Thursday 1st December, and post it in the interactive, talking post box (free of charge) and visit the Christmas enchanting scene with animatronic puppets, life size animals, sleigh and the giant Christmas tree.


Father Christmas will be popping in each Saturday between 11am-4pm to pick up his post and make on lucky child’s Christmas wish come true, each week. Only if they have been good of course!  Children will be able to meet Father Christmas on his sleigh and take a selfie with him and the elf, receiving a little gift too!  Visits are free of charge on 3, 10 and 17 of December. Come in your festive outfits and share with us at #SaddlersChristmaswishes.


Melvin Glasby, The Saddlers Shopping Centre Manager commented; “We’ve got the biggest and best Christmas decorations in Walsall town centre I believe, with a big 20 metre Christmas scene that visitors of all ages will love.  It certainly makes it feel and look festive at the centre. We’ve also managed to get Father Christmas to stop off from his busy scheduled to meet the children of Walsall and will be surprising three lucky children too with a present in time for Christmas!”


With safe, convenient parking, a host of shops with gifts galore and a place for a coffee and cake… stop off at The Saddlers Centre this Christmas.

If you are visiting, please note the following:

  • No booking is required to visit Father Christmas but children must be accompanied by an adult at all times
  • Father Christmas has to go and feed his reindeer at 1:30pm but will be back at 2pm
  • Don’t forget to tell the elf if you have any allergies
  • The queue will close at 3pm to allow everyone to visit Father Christmas by 4pm should the need arise
