Please note, this is a Panto-style strorytelling event, we will not be operating a grotto this year.

A rather naughty elf has been playing havoc with the festive organisation at Christmas HQ in the North Pole, and Mother Christmas needs to work quickly to fix his playful antics. Guided by her trusty magical cookbook, join Mother Christmas, her naughty elf and an appearance from Father Christmas himself in this delightful interactive storytelling performance which encourages lots of playful shouts and giggles from children of all ages.

The storytelling event is a new direction for our Christmas celebrations, moving away from the traditional grotto, this year we are proud to present our first panto-style storytelling for groups of children to see and enjoy. Children may be accompanied by up to two paid-for parents or guardians, all tickets include a Christmas sweetie for each child and crafts to make and take home.
