Translink and Young at Art are helping families across Northern Ireland prepare for Santa’s arrival with special festive workshops in bus and train stations ahead of the local Christmas lights switch-on.

The team from Young at Art, Northern Ireland’s leading arts provider for children and young people, along with a few of Santa’s elves, will help children create ‘Santa Stop Here’ signs and make special sparkly reindeer food in preparation for Christmas.
