Christmas at Overgate begins this Thursday (4th). The Centre will not only be extending its opening hours from 9:00am to 9:00pm each Thursday from now until Christmas, it is also unveiling the Skype with Santa experience.

This year Overgate is not providing shoppers’ children with a simple meet-and-greet. This year visiting Santa will be a truly unique experience.

Santa’s elves will be at Overgate inviting groups of six to ten children into his Skype Experience. Here they will be able to play and Skype with Santa who is out and about, preparing for Christmas Day. But, coincidentally, Santa is in Dundee counting chimneys and so pops in to see everyone!

The experience will last around 15 minutes and the larger space means that families, specialised groups and local schools can visit the Skype Shack together. There will also be opportunities to take photos with Santa.

Skype with Santa is a free experience although Overgate will be collecting donations for their nominated charity Help for Kids.

Malcolm Angus, Centre Manager said:

“We wanted to give children (and adults) something new and exciting this year at Overgate. The Skype with Santa experience is just that.

“We have worked with the team who are creating the Skype Experience before and they are so animated that it’s hard not to get caught up in their excitement. I’m sure it will be a popular addition to the Centre in the run up to Christmas and help keep kids amused while mum and dad do their shopping.”

Overgate will also be giving several lucky shoppers free gift vouchers for the Centre this Thursday, as they did ahead of the Christmas light switch on.

The ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ campaign sees shoppers gifted vouchers from Overgate staff for no reason other than to be kind and spread some Christmas cheer!
