The Santa Clause, with bauble-painting workshop

The Santa Clause, with bauble-painting workshop

“Seeing isn't believing. Believing is seeing.”

In helping Santa with a Christmas crisis, Scott Calvin unwittingly signs himself up to be the next Santa Claus, whether he wants the job or not. Now he has to take on his Christmas duties while keeping his new identity and career a secret.

To fill you with Christmas spirit, Floating Concrete, one of the Silver Building’s in-house tenants, will be leading a decorations workshop. Come and paint your own concrete Christmas character or bauble to take home. This event is suitable for all ages. Before the film begins in the cosy bar area, settle in with hot chocolate, gingerbread, mulled wine, and mistletoe.

Presented by the Royal Docks in partnership with The Silver Building.
