Welcome to Santa in Swanley 2020.


So far 2020 has not been the best of years, however from a small spark of an idea to bring happiness and smiles to Swanley this Christmas ( Plus some blood sweat and tears), the idea has grown arms and legs and now Santa is sprinting to Swanley for a tour starting this week! 8th December!

We are collection donation for the Swanley food bank which would love your support, if you are able to help in anyway, please see the donation section below.

We are also seeking individually wrapped sweet donations to distribute to children along the route too. (quarantined/Locked down for 72 hours first).

Track Santa Live

On each night of Santa’s tour, when Santa starts at 6pm a link will be posted on Facebook, so you can track Santa live and see how far away he is. Please do check his location against the planned routes to understand how far away he is, apparently Rudolph the red nosed reindeer says there is no fun in straight lines and likes to go around the houses before he gets to you! Please also check the routes below to see which night Santa has planned for you (subject to weather dependant changes).

Covid-19 and Elf and Safety

We are bringing Santa to Swanley and the surrounding area to spread joy, smiles, happiness and to raise money for the Swanley food bank charity.
In all seriousness though, we really do need the help of everyone to keep everyone safe.

And now for the boring bit!😭
Please read…….🛷🎅

Unlike some areas we are going ahead with the sleigh and the weather forecast for the week looks pretty good but cold so wrap up warm!!
However we can only go ahead if everyone works together to keep people safe.
– no one in the sleigh except Santa
– photos can be taken beside the sleigh
– buckets will be put out by the elves for donations for food or money.
– sweets will be available for children to collect. There are a mixture of bags of sweets and lollies etc. Please only take one packet or a couple of smaller sweets so there’s enough to go around.
– please respect the elves and give them space to socially distance
– **> please remain in your social bubbles. <**
It is key we follow government guidelines as we can not be in large crowds.

The final rule is that you must have fun 🎅 Santa’s sleigh is powered on Christmas Eve by Christmas spirit. 🎅 We look forward to seeing you all 🎅



Santa’s Routes

General Routes Information

Our first night will be the 8th Dec @ 6pm (weather dependant)
Touring Tuesday to Saturday.

These are the planned routes, all routes have been designed with the safety of the children and Santa’s team in mind and won’t be changed unless it is deemed dangerous.

All dates will go ahead weather permitting, if we have to cancel a date due to this, all routes will be pushed back by a day. We don’t want anyone to miss out!
Along the routes you will see numbered stopping points, we’ve tried to place stopping points near roads we can’t get the Sleigh down and safely turned around (noone wants a stuck Santa ) Some stopping points will take longer than others, so the children all get a chance
The Sleigh will be moving slowly along the route, and if we deem it safe at other points, we may add additional stopping points.
The snow machine will only be used at stopping points, for elf and safety reasons again. All we ask is that people follow the government guidelines regarding staying in your bubbles, respecting each other and most importantly, enjoy and have fun!
There will be Helpers alongside the Sleigh, who will have buckets of sweets & reindeer food for the children to collect, there will also be collection buckets for food and money if you wish to donate to the foodbank.
(If you feel you can volunteer for any of the routes, please get in contact)
There will be lights, music and we hope a touch of magic for the all children

Sweet Donations

Santa and his elf’s will be distributing sweets to Children along Santa’s route.
If you can help provide some sweets to be given out that would be amazing. Due to Covid we are only accepting individually wrapped sweets and are quarantining them for at least 72 hours before they can go out with Santa along the routes.
Therefore receiving any sweet donation as early as possible from now would be great.
Thank you to everyone who has or is going to donate, it is very much appreciated!

Ho Ho Ho!
