This year the grotto will be open every week Wednesday through to Sunday from November 27 until December 11.

Then from the following day it will be open daily from December 12 to Christmas Eve.

Last year the grotto raised just under £7,000 for the charity Pulmonary Heart Association UK with Friars Management raising an extra £1,400 for Stanley Smith, four, who suffers from the incurable disease.
