Santa Express 2020
Currently, we do not think it would be possible to operate the Santa Express in a Covid-19 secure way without significantly detracting from the charm of the event. For instance, the on-train pantomime, one-on-one time with Santa, balloon modelling, singing, etc are activities that we would be very uncomfortable in trying to deliver (if not impossible actually). In point of fact, we are really not sure that we would be allowed to do this even with face coverings and it’s probably safe to say nobody wants to see Santa in a surgical mask!
We will of course continually revisit this decision if and when government guidance changes. We feel and share your disappointment but hope you would agree that under the circumstances this is the only sensible choice.
