I know so many of you were disappointed when you heard Father Christmas wasn’t going to be at Harlow Carr this year – so we are really pleased to announce that he IS coming to Harrogate this year thanks to Harrogate BID and Enchantica!
There have been so many good children this year that The Christmas Council has announced that in recognition of this, Santa will be travelling all the way from the North Pole to The Crown Hotel in Harrogate to visit them.
The Harrogate Father Christmas Experience is an Elf training sing along show with Father Christmas and Tinsel the Elf. After the show every family/group will have the chance to meet Father Christmas, take a picture and all children will get an early Christmas gift and an elf certificate from Father Christmas.
Families with tickets will be welcomed into a special Elf School entrance doorway by our North Pole Elves which opens 30 minutes before their booked show times. When families have been registered they will be taken to the Elf Coco Cafe where children will have the opportunity to help the elves make some decorations for the Coco Cafe as they wait to be invited to see Father Christmas. Families will also have the option to purchase refreshments in the Elf Coco Cafe before their show time begins. Father Christmas will send a message to the Elves when he is ready to meet everyone and families will then be taken through to meet Father Christmas and Tinsel the Elf for their Elf Training experience! When all elf jobs have been completed Father Christmas will invite families up to meet him and everyone will have the opportunity to take a photo with Father Christmas. All children will receive an elf training certificate and a Christmas gift from Father Christmas. Once families have met Father Christmas they will be able to leave full of Christmas magic or extend their festive celebrations by booking a table for brunch/lunch or refreshments at the Crown.
Starting on Saturday, November 20, the town centre venue will become the home of a magical interactive elf-training experience hosted by chief elf, Tinsel. It will run for 15 days, finishing on Christmas Eve. The Harrogate Father Christmas Experience 2021 Santa’s will be known to a host of families, as for a number of years he and his Enchantica grotto have been located at Harlow Carr Gardens/Hoticap.
The Harrogate Father Christmas Experience will be running for a total of 15 dates:
