Peter Pan flew in specially to help switch on the Christmas lights at Main Square, Camberley.
Peter was taking some time off from rehearsing for the panto at Camberley Theatre.
There to give him a hand was Marco the Clown.
Said Glen Fulton, centre manager: "We always enjoy our switch-on day. We had plenty of children's entertainment to brighten up what was otherwise a damp day."
The grotto opens this year on Saturday, Nov 30, and the theme this year is Santa's ice workshop. All the proceeds go to the Make a Wish Foundation.
