Forum Events presents Santa's Magical Express at Riverside Museum, Glasgow;

All aboard!

Board Santa’s Magical Express train and travel through the grounds of the Riverside Museum and past the Tall Ship, two of Glasgow’s most popular attractions brought to you by Forum Events.

Watch out for The Grinch who will be grumbling and throwing sweets at you as you pass!

The fun doesn’t stop when the train stops – you’re invited to see a fantastic show, Santa’s Smashing Christmas.

Enjoy a full day out with the family - an outdoor Christmas street with children's games, food stalls, gift stalls and funfair.

Afterwards you can visit the museum, where over 3,000 objects are on display, there's everything from skateboards to locomotives, paintings to prams and cars to a Stormtrooper!
