Elf Hunt & Santa’s Challenge

The elves have all gone missing! Santa needs your help to find them hiding in the woodland around Greenbank Garden!

Elf Hunt & Santa’s Challenge

About Elf Hunt & Santa’s Challenge

Some naughty elves have even tricked the nice elves and they need your help getting a message to Santa.

Come along to complete all the challenges Santa has set for his trainee elves, before heading into the woodland to track down the missing elves.

You’ll be greeted by our Head Elf in the courtyard with Christmas music playing in the background. Children will complete each challenge and then move on to the woodland elf hunt.

There are 10 ‘elf scenes’ to find in the woodland – a mix of cute and funny will delight your little ones when they find them. Return to the courtyard when you’ve completed the tasks to receive your small gift and certificate.

All activities are outside (Santa’s challenges are all under cover) so please come dressed up warm with wellies and waterproofs to make sure you enjoy the experience. There’ll be hot chocolate with marshmallows and delicious treats available in the café. The experience lasts approx 45 mins–1 hour, depending on how long your wee ones spend in the woodland.

Please note Santa will not be at this event.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Elf Hunt & Santa’s Challenge are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
