Is your December too busy for a visit to Granny’s Christmas Grotto? then this event might be just what you need, we have been asked by so many of our wonderful supporters if we would again provide them with a Mid Winter Christmas fix so here it is.

Before or after visiting us you could have a little retail therapy in town and maybe stay for dinner at one of our lovely cafes or restaurants, if you have the kids with you a visit to our awesome new Te Ahuru Mowai Playground would be a must.

If these hours don’t fit your lifestyle how about organising a Private Viewing, these are available for a minimum of 10 people and a maximum of 40 people at a cost of $7 per person. You will be given a guided tour taking approximately one hour and you won’t have to queue or share the Grotto with hundreds of other people.

Our private viewings are proving very popular with Rest Homes, Schools, Car Clubs, Mother’s Groups, Book Clubs, Women’s Institute, Floral Groups, Tour Operators, Special Birthday Celebrations and many others along with like-minded Groups of Friends.

Over 260 Sq metres of Christmas Magic, there is so much to see in this very extensive collection, including several working train villages, 70 plus decorated trees in 13 different themed areas. If you are a fan of American Folk Art Sculptor Jim Shore then you are in for a treat we have New Zealand’s largest private collection of his work with over 200 exquisite pieces.

This is my personal collection of all things Christmas.
I have an absolute passion for Christmas, this is a time when we should all be sharing and caring about each other and not just family.

We are not a Registered Charity or Incorporated Society which means we do not qualify for funding. We do get some private sponsorship from local businesses for which we are most grateful. This is something we enjoy sharing with the wider community, it is a delight to see the faces of young and old when they come through the Grotto and great to have so many folk from out of our district come to Marton for a visit.
