The highly anticipated 'Santa In The Caves' returns at Kents Cavern

The Kents Cavern Christmas experience is getting better! A bigger and better Santa in the Caves and Carols in the Caves experience returns.

Get ready for a mesmerising journey into the enchanting depths of Kents Cavern, as the ever-popular ‘Santa in the Caves’ event returns for another year of festive fun.

A major event in the English Riviera’s Christmas calendar ‘Santa in the Caves’ was named amongst the top Santa Grottos in the UK pre-covid, and 2023’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever before. Joining Torbay in celebrating the ‘Bay of Lights’, the family-friendly event will illuminate the caves turning it into the one true grotto in Devon.

This year, ‘Santa in the Caves’ will transport visitors on a captivating adventure to uncover the “true meaning of Christmas”. Led by festive-themed actors, an interactive pantomime will guide you through the stunning caves, unveiling secrets and surprises along the way.

Adding to the magic, each child will receive a special light wand at the start of the journey. As they progress through the grotto, this magical wand will illuminate the Christmas lights, creating a breathtaking and immersive atmosphere for the entire family to enjoy.

The adventure culminates in a truly captivating encounter with Santa Claus himself. Each child will have the opportunity to share their Christmas wishes and receive a beautifully wrapped gift, making their visit to Kents Cavern an unforgettable experience. Meanwhile, adults can indulge in the festive spirit with a complimentary glass of mulled wine and delectable treats.

But the festivities don't end there. ‘Carols in the Caves’ is also returning, with more dates and a new choir.

A captivating concert that fills the ancient chambers with the glorious sounds of traditional Christmas carols, ‘Carols in the Caves’ is returning for nine dates in November and December. This year, the Kents Cavern team are excited to announce that ‘Red Rock Acapella’ will be joining the line-up alongside the ‘Torbay Police and Community Choir’ and ‘Yours In Harmony’ choirs.

With hauntingly beautiful acoustics, you’ll experience the magic of the chambers as talented singers serenade you with heartwarming melodies. Afterwards, you’ll walk through the caves and join in the singing of beloved carols, creating a truly magical evening.

Plus, as a special bonus, adults attending ‘Santa in the Caves’ and those attending ‘Carols in the Caves’ will receive a complimentary return ticket to explore the caves in January 2024. This allows visitors to extend their enjoyment of Kents Cavern beyond the holiday season and into the New Year.

Both the ‘Santa in the Caves’ and ‘Carols in the Caves’ events showcase the unique charm and wonder of Kents Cavern during the holiday season. With their distinct offerings, these events provide families and visitors of all ages a chance to embrace the spirit of Christmas in an extraordinary setting.

Tickets for both events are limited, and early booking is highly recommended to secure your place.
