What Christmas events are happening in Penistone in 2022?

Santa's Sleigh is on its' Way...

Santa returns to spread the Christmas magic in 2022!

Santa is liaising closely with the Penistone-based charity group, Penistone Round Table (1094) this year in organising his annual visit. Check out the itinerary below that shows where and when Santa will be passing your home to check all the boys and girls are behaving themselves ahead of the Big Day. When it's getting close to the time for his visit, you'll be able to listen out for Santa's favourite TUNES being blasted out of his sleigh. When you hear the music, just come to the end of your path or drive to get a glimpse of the big man himself! Don't forget to be on your best behaviour.

All donations are welcome - and to make this as easy and as safe as possible, the Penistone Round Table (and Santa) are encouraging ONLINE donations. You can donate by following this link:
