The wintery installation will be located in the venue’s piazza from 4-6 December. Visitors will be able to meet the Cbeebies stars, take part in Christmas arts and crafts and enjoy storytelling sessions. 

The experience forms part of Media City’s line up of events to celebrate Christmas. Local artisans and businesses will set up shop at a Makers Markets event on the same weekend, meanwhile The Lodge, a cosy wintertime pop-up, will open from 3 December.

Media City is also hosting ITV’s Text Santa Christmas Fayre on 3 December.

Victoria Jackson, event manager for the Makers Market, said: "We are thrilled to be working with Media City UK on this event. It is a privilege to bring together a fabulous mix of creative and food talent and with the great music, performers and the CBeebies Igloo joining us, is set to bring even more seasonal cheer to the area."
