There is a very special guest arriving at Dundrum Town Centre this evening

Ho ho ho!

It's that time a year again, and according to Dundrum Town Centre, Santa has been in touh to say he will be arriving at his grotto in the Town Square at 6 pm this evening.

Even better? Word on the street has it that he will be bringing some very special North Pole slime with him to gift to children coming out to see him arriving this afternoon.

Apparently, this special batch of North Pole slime has been made by Santa and Rudolph especially for the first 200 visitors to arrive at Dundrum and Rudolph apparently contributed the ‘magical glow from his red nose’ — making it bright and sparkly.

To entertain the crowds before Santa himself arrives, Santa’s elves will be on hand and this is what Santa had to say about his upcoming visit to Dundrum Town Centre:

‘My visit to Dundrum Town Centre is one of my favourite trips and this year myself and Rudolph wanted to make it extra special by creating a magical batch of slime for the children.’

Don Nugent, general manager of Dundrum Town Centre said: "We’re looking forward to Santa’s annual arrival to Dundrum Town Centre. We can’t believe he’s made us a unique batch of slime for the children who visit us. He never disappoints but this year is set to be his most exciting visit yet."

There will be music and entertainment from The Charming Soubrettes, Miss Ali’s Stage School and the Mill Theatre in order to give Santa and all visitors a warm welcome, so join 98fm's Cooper and Xpose's Nadine Reid in welcoming Santa this year to his magical Grotto.
