Santa Tours

Something of an iconic event on the Town, this is one of the most popular Council events.  On a very busy Christmas Eve we are lucky to have Santa tour the streets of Newton Aycliffe with his team of driver and navigator, stopping in as many streets as possible to dispense Christmas cheer and sweets for children (of all ages!)

Santa has a timetable which shows the approximate time you can expect him at your location.  Please note that Santa can be held up by bad weather too!

Santa checks that children have been behaving during the year and promises to see if he can bring them something from their wish list.
The routes and approximate times are also printed in the Newton News.  From 3.45 pm listen out for the Christmas music.

We would like to thank Aycliffe Fabrications, Pinkney Builders, Northern Power Clean, Sabre Rail, Shildon Town Council and Beaumont Ground Maintenance for the loan of their vehicles.
