Santa’s Elf Academy Grotto

Ho Ho Ho! It’s Santa here. My Elves have very busy all year at home in the North Pole making presents! Now I’ve brought  my elves to Oswaldtwistle Mills where we’re going to make lots and lots of toys in our special Toy Factory!

You’ll be able to visit my “Elf Academy” Grotto and learn all you need to know to be a Elf!

  • Find out your Elf Name!
  • Fuel the glow in dark Toy Factory with UV Snowballs and have your Elfie Selfie taken.
  • Prove you have a good memory with our memory games.
  • Help Santa work out where in the world presents need to go!
  • Learn to play elf tunes on the grotto bells.
  • Get your very own elf badge.
  • Earn your Certifcate to prove you passed Elf Academy.

Then lastly, I’ll be waiting to see you to hear all your Christmas wishes and give you a very special present!

All the details you need are below but now I have to go and feed Donner and Blitzen and the other Reindeer so I’ll say bye for now and see you from 9th November onwards.

Love Santa x
