Full list of Northampton ‘sleigh stops’ for 2023, where Santa will visit for 14 days leading up to Christmas
and live on Freeview channel 276
Here is the full list of locations Santa will be visiting in the run up to Christmas, starting on December 8 and finishing on December 21.
For almost two decades, the Rotary Club of Northampton Becket has enabled families to visit Santa who may not be able to otherwise – all while raising money that is donated back into the community to a number of local charities.
For most of the areas, Santa will move to different locations between 5pm until 7pm each evening.
The static display of the sleigh, complete with Santa, music and helpers, will be outside Tesco in Mereway everyday from 11am until 7pm from December 15 to 21.
Donations can be made while visiting Santa on his journey, but you can also donate through the online fundraising page here to help the Rotary Becket Club reach its £8,000 target.
