This year, although Father Christmas will be at Madeira Shopping, he will also be telecommuting. Until the 24th of December he will be at his home in Lapland talking to children via video link.
As tradition dictates, families and in particular youngsters will be able to talk to Father Christmas from the comfort of their homes, guaranteeing a magical meeting at this time of the year and in complete safety.
To schedule your visit with the man in red and a flowing white beard, you must access the MadeiraShopping website and schedule your video call. After you book your timeslot, you will receive a code and password to access the video call link.
During Christmas week, Father Christmas will be available for visits in the late afternoon. On Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Details of the schedules are available on the MadeiraShopping website.
In addition the shopping centre will house several Christmas scenes including magical houses, and to bring the season alive for families the shopping centre website will also encourage everyone to create their own nativity scene at home using their downloadable Christmas package which can be printed and personalised allowing families to create their own festive pieces of art.
