SANTA was the special guest at thecentre:mk on Friday.
Hundreds of excited children visited the shopping centre as Santa Claus directed his sleigh from Marks & Spencer to Middleton Hall.
Milton Keynes Orchestra played Christmas carols for a sing-along, while some got in line for the first train rides and trips out on to the specially-built ice rink.
And our videographer Natalee Hazlewood was there to capture it all.
