If you are looking for a magical family Christmas event, then please support this wonderful charity Santa Experience.

This weekend (Saturday, December 8 and Sunday, December 9) Maghera based company Specialist Joinery Group are hosting a MEGA family Christmas day out inside their stunning new 145,000 ft² headquarters on the Coleraine Road. Project Santa and the Secret Christmas Wonderland is Northern Ireland’s largest indoor Christmas attraction.

SANTA has engaged the company to help him FIX his Magical Christmas Sprinkler, which has mysteriously broken down! Specialist Joinery Group have a long standing relationship with the big man himself, after completing his Global Innovation Centre last year. After the impressive high quality delivered by the Specialist team in the previous year, Santa and his elves have requested that the specialist team help him fix the magic sprinkler.

All attendees to the event will be greeted by SANTA on arrival and have a photo opportunity with him. Now in it’s third year, the giant “Christmas Wonderland” attraction is bigger and better than before, with top-notch attractions, entertainment and exceptional surprises in store for all the family.

A full bill of entertainment will commence throughout each session, starting with Santa Experience in his Grotto with photo and present for all children, followed by live entertainment from TV presenter Sarah Travers, live music and a SURPRISE Special Guest from renowned CIRCUS performers.

Local Chef, Barry Dallat of Arbutus Catering has created a unique Food Market for visitors to enjoy with cuisine on offer from 4 different countries. Each attendee will receive a voucher for the market with their ticket.

There will be a special display of farm machinery from multiple manufacturers for agriculture enthusiasts to enjoy.

Acorn Images, husband and wife team Paul and Bronagh McElhennon are confirmed as event photographers and a digital group family portrait with Santa is included in the ticket cost.

And the best bit is yet to come- all funds raised from this show stopping Christmas event will benefit ten carefully selected charities that support local people. The Specialist team aim to raise £100,000 between the ten chosen charities, which are: S.T.E.PS, Alzheimer’s, Our Lady of Lourdes Pilgrimage, Chest and Heart Stroke, Cystic Fibrosis, Marie Curie, Children’s Cancer Unit, NI Children’s Hospice, Kings College Hospital, London and Sands NI.
