Minster FM On Air


Christmas Eve, 12–2pm

On Christmas Eve, your children can speak to Father Christmas live on the radio!

From 12-2pm, Santa will be in our studio taking calls from North Yorkshire's youngsters in our annual Santa Call with Grand Central.

It's their chance to speak to the big man himself and to tell him what presents they'd most like this year.

Santa will aim to get through as many calls as possible, but it's always busy, so we can't promise to speak to everyone unfortunately.

Sorry - you're too late to take part this year!
