Christmas wrapped up in Orchard Square

Orchard Square, located in the heart of Sheffield’s city centre, will be a hub of festive spirit this year as it hosts Santa’s Study, part of this year’s Sheffield Christmas Trail, which is open to the public from now until Christmas Eve.

Offering a peek into one of the world’s most famous homes, Santa’s Study will give children the opportunity to write their letters to Father Christmas while enjoying the magical experience of a Christmas wonderland. Plus, the team of elves on hand will ensure that every letter written makes its way safely to the North Pole.

The Christmas Trail, a series of free activities to also include the ninth interactive Brearley Bear trail and the Christmas Crooners, will be stationed on the first floor in Atkinsons. It has been organised and delivered by Sheffield Business Improvement District (BID) to encourage visitors to Sheffield city centre.

Orchard Square will also be hosting free Children’s Christmas Craft activities over the coming weeks, including bauble making (to take home or add to the Orchard Square Christmas tree) and wreath making. The Children’s Christmas Craft activities will take place in the Square every Saturday in the lead up to Christmas between 11am–1pm.

Commenting on the planned festive activity ahead, Shay Murray, Orchard Square manager, told Exposed: “We’re delighted to be part of the Sheffield Christmas Trail this year and to be offering our visitors free, family-friendly activities to help ensure a magical and interactive experience for all.

“The Square has lots in stores this Christmas – so whatever your age, whatever your interest and whatever your budget, we look forward to welcoming everyone soon.”
