Santa's Grotto in "The Big Top Christmas show" at thecentre:mk is now open. On the 16 November there was a procession through the malls to open the Grotto. The parade featured a friendly ringmaster and circus clowns from the National Clown Association leading Santa, in a specially designed clown car, and Joshua and Minnie Press winners of the "Milton Keynes's Biggest Smile" competition.
Hundreds of families waved and cheered Santa in his annual procession from Door 1 next to M&S, through the shopping centre down both Midsummer Arcade and Silbury Arcade towards the Christmas show in Middleton Hall. The parade was led by a friendly ringmaster with a group of performing clowns who interacted with the audience along the way. The clowns featured a stilt walker, a clown on a mini cycle and a clown on a rolling globe - who also used a skipping rope on the globe outside Santa's Grotto to entertain the gathered crowds.
"The Big Top Christmas show" has been in thecentre:mk since the 6 November and after a fantastic response last year, with 70,000 people riding on the train, there's a welcome return of the Santa's Circus Train. The show features huge red swags of fabric draped from the ceiling, Santa's grotto dressed as a big top, a 30 foot tall Christmas tree, a wishing pool with a 35 foot tall elephant as the centre piece, an animatronic performing ringmaster, a double decker carousel, 40 foot high helter skelter and dozens of circus figures hanging from trapeze, ropes, in cars, planes and custard pie throwing antics.
