Fellow Hartlepudlians !  We have some bad news………. And some good news !!

Firstly, the bad. After much deliberation and masses of ideas explored, we have to inform you that our Santa Sleigh will not be touring the streets of Hartlepool this year. We are gutted that we cannot bring it to you as we love doing it as much as you enjoy seeing Santa (and the hilarious jokes and amazing talent of our Chief Elf).  The reality is, we just could not find a way in which we could avoid the large crowds which assemble, keep you all safe and make sure that every child who wishes to meet / see Santa could.

In light of the current pandemic, anything which brings thousands of people together (even outdoors) in such close proximity would be irresponsible. We love you all far to much to see you end up ill over the Christmas holidays. AND we have to keep Santa safe so he can visit you all in your homes.


To replace this years Santa Sleigh, the Hartlepool Round Table guys have arranged for Santa Claus to visit your home via a personalised video call. For a small donation of £5.00, you can book a call with the big fella from his secret grotto in the North Pole. He will talk to your child personally in the warm comfort of your own home. No queues, no cold but an alternative experience in your little one’s childhood.

Furthermore, Santa will send a personalised letter to every child he speaks to so that they don’t miss out on the usual fantastic Hartlepool Round Table offer.

Spaces are limited, so don’t delay – book today by clicking on the link below.

Thank you and Merry Christmas

PS – Santa (and the amazingly talented Chief Elf) will be back next year – DEFO !!
