Event description

Description

Edinburgh Trams and the Gyle Shopping Centre have teamed up once again to bring you The Gyle Santa Express!

This magical event will be available for two days only, as Santa has to rush back to the North Pole and get ready for Christmas, however if you miss him don’t worry you can head down to the Gyle Shopping Centre to visit him (for full dates and times see www.gyleshopping.com)!

Join Santa aboard Edinburgh Trams on Sunday 1 and Monday 2 December for a trip you won’t want to miss. Santa will be on board our festive express, singing Christmas carols and taking any requests for the big day from good little girls and boys. Children on our Santa tram will also receive an selection box from the man in the big red suit himself!

The Gyle Santa Express will be taking five trips in total:

  • Sunday 1 December 10:25am: Gyle Centre to St Andrew Square

  • Sunday 1 December 11:40am: Gyle Centre to St Andrew Square

  • Sunday 1 December 12:50pm: Gyle Centre to St Andrew Square

  • Monday 2 December 10:25am: Gyle Centre to St Andrew Square

  • Monday 2 December 12:50pm: Gyle Centre to St Andrew Square

Please book your spot accordingly, tickets must be purchased online prior to event with proceeds going to Edinburgh Trams charity of the year - Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity. Your ticket will allow a return journey back to your pick-up location on any in-service tram on the day, so why not take the opportunity to pick up some Christmas shopping at Gyle Shopping Centre on your trip? Please retain your ticket to show your Ticketing Services Assistant on board.

We have allocated a limited number of tickets for each Santa Tram, children are required to stay seated throughout the whole journey and Santa will come to you! Buggies are welcome aboard the Santa Tram however to give Father Christmas enough space to move about the tram if able these will be asked to be collapsed and stored in the luggage racks. If you intend on coming with a double buggy please email communications@edinburghtrams.com to let us know so we allocate enough space per tram.

Please note, in the case of unforseen circumstances (for example, extreme weather) the Gyle Santa Express may be unable to run. In this case we will endeavour to change the date of the event or a refund will be issued.
