Places to meet Father Christmas in Stroud

"Holiday's are comin'!" Perhaps it's the long white beard, or snuggly red velvet suit, or simply because he gives out presents; whatever the reason - we can't get enough of Father Christmas! The evenings are drawing in and we're counting down the days until we see his presents under the tree; with all his gift-giving and time-travel, it's a miracle he's able to make it to town at all!

Stroud Rocks has on good authority (from the elves) where 'Santa Claus', 'Saint Nick', or 'Papa Crimbo' will be stopping for 'elfies' and deliveries in town this year. "He's making a list, he's checking it twice" and he's found out that Stroud children are on his nice list this year! So, if you still haven’t got your list of present requests in, now you can! You can find some of Santa's pre-Christmas appearances below. And for our full list of events, hit the Christmas Events in Stroud button on our home page.

Where is Santa is stopping in the run up to the big day for your Christmas calendar scheduling pleasure? Letters at the ready!
