This is the 2022 old guide. Please click here if you’re looking for the current 2023 Christmas Events Guide!
In 2022 I’m starting my Christmas Events 2022 guide even earlier. Events to see Santa in Cardiff and South Wales have started releasing earlier than ever this year. I update this guide regularly – sometimes even daily, as new Christmas events are released. Last year lots of venues still weren’t sure about possible COVID restrictions so couldn’t invest in their Christmas events – but in 2022 it seems like businesses are feeling much more confident and I think we’re going to have an amazing array of family friendly Christmas events to choose from.
If you want a more personal memento as well as a great experience, you could consider a private photography package. The image above of William with Father Christmas was taken by Adele Morris Photography in 2021. I’ve also booked her Christmas package again for 2022 because it was such a good experience. Steelworks Santa is the most authentic Santa I’ve ever met – and I’ve met a LOT of Santas!
Follow me on Facebook or Twitter for updates whenever something new is added to this page. Remember to always check with the venue before traveling to events for the most up to date information and to ensure no one is disappointed in Christmas 2022. Christmas Events 2022 – Christmas in Cardiff and South Wales was last updated on 9th November 2022.
