The villages and streets Santa will visit on his 2021 Doncaster sleigh tour

It is one of the most eagerly awaited Christmas traditions in Doncaster – and here some of the streets and villages Santa will be visiting on his 2021 sleigh tour of Doncaster.

Tuesday, 2nd November 2021, 11:38 am

The annual event, which sees Father Christmas tour the streets of Doncaster ahead of December 25, was cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions, leaving thousands of youngsters across the town disappointed.

But the event is back for 2021 – and dates and locations for this year are starting to be announced.

The tours are organised by three local Lions clubs – with each branch covering different parts of the town.

Santa is returning to Doncaster on his sleigh tour.

Thorne Rural Lions has released details of its route while Doncaster Lions and Went Valley Lions have promised that its routes will be published in the coming days.

The popular fundraising event sees Father Christmas bringing some magical joy and cheers to neighbourhoods across Doncaster, with youngsters lining the streets to catch a glimpse of the main man in the red and white suit, accompanied by a musical and light display, with volunteers helping to collect funds.
