Silent Santa is Back

We are so excited for all the kids and families who will get to enjoy a comfortable visit with Santa this holiday season! Londonderry will once again be offering Silent Santa appointments with our Mr. & Mrs. Claus for the upcoming holiday season. Appointments will be available in 5-minute time slots from 9:00 am to 10:50 am on the following Sundays - November 26th, December 3rd and 17th.
Silent Santa offers an opportunity for children with sensory sensitivities to have an enjoyable experience in a quieter and sensory-friendly environment - the music will be kept off, and the lights will be slightly dimmer. The event will be held before the opening of Londonderry to ensure there is minimal traffic and noise throughout the mall. 
Autism Edmonton is thrilled to participate in this program for the second year. We have already met with Mr. and Mrs. Claus to help them and the elves prepare for the activity. Our staff and volunteers also will be attending all three Silent Santa sessions. 
Please call Guest Services at 780-476-1441 to book a visit (space is limited, so call today).

Sessions at Londonderry are booked out for this holiday season, but we are pleased to share with you the news that more and more malls are trying to make the Christmas tradition more inclusive - Kingsway Mall and Mill Woods Town Centre are also offering special visits with Santa for children with special needs. Please visit their websites for more information.
