Our amazing SELL OUT Santa experiences with Steel Works Santa are BACK for the 4th year!

For our fourth year we are going to be making these sessions even more special. We are taking away all the fluff and faff so you and most importantly, your children, have the most amazing, magical Christmas experience with the one and only real Santa!

Sessions will be held on:

16th/ 17th November 2024

Our Stunning Venue

This year this event will be held at the beautiful Tyn Celler Farm, just 5 minutes from last year's venue and just off junction 38 of the M4.

The farm has plenty of easy parking around it's lovely grounds and the hall we are using for the experience is bright and rustic!

The venue is dog friendly (dogs MUST be kept on leads as there is livestock) and very easy to find.

We will be transforming the space into the North Pole for the day and there will be a waiting area for your little ones to wait with Mrs Claus before we open the double doors in to see Santa!

Charity Focus

As always, these events will be supporting Steel Works Santa's nominated charities. This year we are supporting

Hope Rescue

Alzheimer's Cymru

Last year our photoshoots were a huge contribution to Steel Works Santa! We raised over £2000 across just 3 and a half days of sessions which is absolutely incredible!

Where is the new venue?

This year we are holding the sessions at Tyn Celler Farm - the full address is:
Tyn Cellar Farm, Water St, Port Talbot SA13 2PD

Who can attend?

The sessions are suitable for up to 4 children and you are welcome to share with cousins/extended family. If there are more than 4 children you will need to book 2 consecutive slots due to time constraints. You must be happy for all children to meet and talk to Santa together.

When will they take place?

We have availability on the 16th & 17th November. No additional dates will be added this year

Are the sessions dog friendly?

Yes, me and Santa both love dogs! They will need to be comfortable around strangers and must be kept on a lead at the farm as there is livestock there.

How long are the sessions?

They usually last 20 minutes.
Your children will sit with Santa in our living room set while he tells them a Christmas story and then they will be able to tell him all about what they want for Christmas! This usually takes around 10 minutes and I'll be taking photographs of their interactions the whole time. After this we usually have a few posed photo opportunities.
This is so much more time with Santa than you'd have in any grotto and is guaranteed to be completely magical for your children.

What if my child/children get scared of Santa?

This is why we have a bit of extra time either side of your session, to allow children to get used to him before we start taking photos. If they really aren't happy we can always ask Santa to step out and take some images of them alone in the festive sets. We will always try our best to get images of your children with Santa, but we do know he can be a little overwhelming for the little ones sometimes!

Can I change my appointment after booking?

Due to the limited number of sessions that always sell out, once booked we are unable to change your session date/time.

What will the backdrop be like?

I will be confirming the backdrop a little later this year.
(it will be entirely different to last year and to any other photographer locally)

We've been before, will the gift be the same?

No - I always find something different each year.

Can babies attend?

Of course! As long as you are happy for Santa to hold your child then any age is welcome. If they cannot sit up unaided yet though, we will be limited on what we can do in terms of images without Santa, so please be prepared that you or a sibling may need to hold them.
