Farrington's is teaming up with Elf in the House to bring the best Christmas experience to the South West. This cheeky, festive event is fun for all the family!

Santa has sent a team of elves straight from the North Pole on a magical mission to find some children to help them with some of their important Christmas preparations. The event starts with The Elf Academy; you will be given an elf hat, elf face paint and be introduced to chase one of Santa's crazy elves. At the top of Santa's list is to make Magical Reindeer Food for Santa's hungry reindeer and to plant Candy Cane ready for the candy cane harvest, (your candy cane seed will actually grow into a real candy cane by the next morning). You will then learn how to be cheeky and get inspiration from the 10 sets of elves you will find on the hunt. This is followed by a trip to the Elf Joke Shop where there will be training, tricks and the chance to pick your favourite joke to take home. Once you have finished Santa's magical mission you will receive a Grade 1 Elf Certificate.

Once you have achieved your Elf Award there is lots more to do, why not take a trip to our North Pole Post Room and write a letter to Santa and post it in our Magical Post Box! Or why not check out our selfie station and take some great photos. There is also a Missing Santa, his sleigh and clothes are here but there is no sigh of the man himself, Candy Cane Trees, a Elf Village, and a Real Christmas Tree Forest.

To finish off there will be a space to chill out and enjoy some craft activities and why not pop along to our epic hot chocolate bar where you can choose to top your hot chocolate with a number of delicious toppings including brownies, salted caramel or marshmallows. There will be festive shopping and even the chance to pick up a freshly cut Christmas tree to take home.
