Santa has chosen Lockmeadow, Maidstone as the festive home for his magical post box this Christmas; where children can come and write their letters for free and receive a reply in the following weeks. 

The giant red post box has a direct route to the North Pole to ensure children’s letters get there super-fast so that they can share their wish list with Santa and enjoy the magic of Christmas. 

There will also be a free fun Christmas trail running through the centre of Lockmeadow with a prize at the end for each child.

Children can post their letters from November 27th to December 12th and can collect them up until Sunday December 19th.

The trail will be available 27th– 29th November and 4th – 5th December, 10am – 4pm.

Lockmeadow Entertainment Centre wants to ensure the spirit of Christmas is still thriving this year and with the addition of the new food hall Love Food @ Lockmeadow now open, there’s even more reason to visit. If you’re coming along to post your letter, why not enjoy some tasty street food and have a fabulous day out at Lockmeadow.

The clocks have gone back, it’s getting colder and Christmas is just around the corner. Don’t let the summer blues get you down, it’s a great time of year! Your favourite restaurants at Lockmeadow are switching out their light summer salads to warm and hearty meals that are sure to keep you full during these colder months. Just because it’s Winter doesn’t mean you have to stay inside and hibernate, there are plenty of fun activities at Lockmeadow for you and all the family!

Since it’s the season of giving, here’s our list of all the things you can do at Lockmeadow this winter:

 

Gourmet Burger Kitchen:

Forget about putting the baubles on your Christmas tree, give your seasons greetings to The Holy Smoke. The festive flavours are infused into burger by a Christmas tree smoked patty of 6oz beef, topped with crumbled and fried Camembert, truffle mayo, onion jam and baby spinach. If that isn’t the ultimate Christmas Burger then we don’t know what is!?

What is Winter without a Christmas film? No Christmas is complete without Disney taking over the box office. Mary Poppins Returns, comes back to our cinema screens on December 21st. For those looking for something more action packed then the next entry from DC, Aquaman, hits theatres on the 14th December.
