Great Grottos provide all staff, including Santa, Elves and Grotto Manager. They manage screening, DBS, training and scheduling, really taking the headache out of running the Grotto. They provide all gifts and costumes for the staff, and equipment to produce photo souvenirs. They have a huge amount of knowledge and give clear and helpful advice regarding set up, the best times to open and any technical requirements. We have no hesitation in recommending them.”

“Great Grottos have provided The Centre Livingston with a fantastic Santa, Elves since Christmas 2012 with a successful future partnership ahead.
