Elf Academy is back!

Our popular Elf Academy is back – with all new Elf challenges, and some extra special Christmas magic! Elf Academy will run every weekend from 2nd December – 24th December from 11am – 5pm offering FREE festive fun to families in and around Chineham.

Are you ready to embrace your inner Elf and embark on a magical journey? At Elf Academy, you’ll learn all the essential skills to become a fully-fledged elf, straight from the North Pole! From mastering the art of the workshop, cooking in Mrs Claus’ kitchen to perfecting your reindeer food making, this hands-on event will have you feeling like a true elf in no time.

Every trainee is given their own hat to take home and, on graduation, a special message from the North Pole.

So, mark your calendars and gather your loved ones for an event filled with laughter, festive cheer, and enchantment at Elf Academy. Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate the magic of Christmas and create memories that will last a lifetime!

Each week will see different challenges so Elves can return as often as they like to increase their knowledge and skills! 

As well as making your own bag of reindeer food to take home, trainee Elf challenges include:

2nd / 3rd – Make your own Reindeer themed hot chocolate bag to take home and decorate a Bauble for your tree

9th /10th – Decorate a gingerbread man and make your own wreath to hang on your door

16th / 17th – Make a coconut snowman biscuit and snowman decoration

23rd / 24th – Make your own hot chocolate complete with cream and marshmallows and a pop-up gingerbread man decoration.

You’ll find the Elf Academy in the unit between The Cutting Bar & Costa, near the Bandstand.

We look forward to seeing you there!
