Welcome back to Christmas at the Saddlers Centre

The Saddlers Shopping Centre is ready to welcome you to a festive Christmas with all the trimmings!

This year the centre has gone to town and alongside the usual traditional 16ft Christmas tree in the main event square, visitors will be greeted to a magical snow scene with moving puppetry, life size reindeer, an ornate sleigh and an interactive, talking post box for children’s Christmas present lists.

What’s more, Father Christmas will be visiting every festive Saturday in December (4th, 11th and 18th December) between 11am-4pm to pick up all the Christmas present wish lists that the children of Walsall have written in readiness for the big day. He will be picking one letter each week and surprising a lucky child with a present off their wish list! Need to write your list …. read on!
