Father Christmas will be making the first of his visits to County Mall on Saturday (November 17).
His annual parade around the mall will begin at noon.
It will include giant snow birds, elves and Mrs Claus. They will be making appearances in the centre until 4pm.
Gayle Cassinos from County Mall said: “As well as welcoming Santa into the centre and offering free gifts and photo opportunities to families, we are also hosting brand new events to help children feel the magic of Christmas, such as, festive cookie making with Mrs Claus on November 24 and Elfie Selfie Calendar Making on December 1.
“We hope our customers enjoy the new festive characters around the mall, featuring the acapella singing penguins, our talking Rudolf, a story telling owl and an Arctic man located on the upper mall.”
Santa will be making appearances on November 17 and 24, and December 1, 8, 15 and 24.
