Santa paws is coming to the city this Christmas as a grotto for dogs returns to Norwich.

The festive season is in full swing in the city and now you can make sure your four-legged friend isn’t left out.

The grotto is returning by popular demand and is taking place on Saturday, December 8 outside The Forum.

Visitors can bring their pets to meet Santa Woof Woof and take a free photo to share with friends and family and fancy dress is encouraged.

The event is run in partnership with RSPCA Norwich & Mid Norfolk and visitors are welcome to donate to the charity on the day.
