Breakfast with Santa Update 2021

Breakfast with Santa has been a festive favourite at Poplar Nurseries over the years - there’s nothing like sitting down with the big man himself to get the little ones in the Christmas spirit! Last year, due to restrictions around the pandemic, we sadly had to cancel the event in order to stay in line with guidelines and keep staff and customers safe. We have made the difficult decision to do the same this year.

We understand that, like us, many of you look forward to our Breakfast with Santa in the lead up to Christmas. Having reduced the capacity of guests in the restaurant to keep a safe amount of space between customers and reduce the risk of passing on the virus, we decided that Breakfast with Santa would bring people within a close proximity of each other that we just don’t feel is safe for our staff or customers in the current situation. With the rise of Covid-19 cases, especially in schools, we believe that this is the best decision.

Although we have had to call and cancel Santa’s visit with us, that doesn’t mean that Christmas isn’t in full force here at Poplar! Our Christmas showroom, ever the popular attraction, is looking festive and bright with glistening lights, beautiful baubles and more. Why not pop down for a browse before stopping for a warming drink at the restaurant?  We will also be running our miniature railway through our Christmas themed gardens.  Bring the family along to enjoy a ride on the Santa Express! 

We look forward to seeing you soon and look forward to Santa’s return in the future.
