About Santa’s Magical Express

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!

For an extra charge of £10 per child, you can visit Santa in his grotto and receive a gift.

The grotto will be located in the cobbled street part of the museum in the photographer's studio; you can take your own photos or purchase photo gifts.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Santa’s Magical Express are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
