Santa goes to Glossop station

November 21, 2010

Our good friends at Glossop station – winners of last year’s Station Adoption Group of the Year award – are organising a Christmas Santa Special for Saturday 4th December. It’s a great excuse to visit the attractive Derbyshire town nesting under the Peak District moors, for some Christmas shopping somewhere different !

The Santa Event at the station runs from 11am to 1pm, with Santa arriving on the 11.39 train. He will stay for about an hour giving gifts to the children present.

The Christmas tree lights switch on will be by PETE MYERS, Head of Service Quality at Northern Rail.

For entertainment there is talented young magician Jake Barlow, Hollingworth Junior Brass Band, Glossop Model Railway Club, two local comic pantomime characters from Dick Whittington and a make a decoration for the tree stand.

Refreshments will be available – featuring the Friends of Glossop Station’s famous soups!

Weekend fares to Glossop are ridiculously cheap … just £3.30 off-peak adult return.
