This Christmas, The Forge at The Court will help make the Santa experience truly memorable for Christchurch children. Santa and three of his elves will be flying in on December 13th and December 20th prior to their appearance, on Christmas Eve, in chimneys all over the world.

Elves R U Nortyornice, Glitterdust and Howdoo Umeasureup, will be assisting Santa in his Forge Christmas Grotto. Not only will they handle the ‘Naughty or Nice’ list, but also, when Santa takes his milk and biscuit breaks at 10 am, 11 am and 12 noon, they will entertain Grotto visitors with a story and a carol or two.

No Queues and No Charges

As an early Christmas present to mums and dads, not to mention boys and girls, Santa has banned queues at The Forge Christmas Grotto. Instead his elves will meet the children on arrival and take down their names, checking to see if they are on the naughty or nice list. Children will have plenty to do while they wait to be introduced to Santa; children can chat to the elves, write and post a Christmas letter or take pictures at the photo booth.

Santa commented, “Ho ho ho, boys and girls have come to see me in my Grotto not stand in line and I know that mums and dads will appreciate my early Christmas gift of making the whole event free.”

Santa’s Head of Marketing Ms S Cape Klaus says, “Generally children do not get much face-time with Santa and his elves. In this way The Forge Christmas Grotto will provide a unique Santa experience, unavailable elsewhere in Christchurch.”

Rudolf Redknows, the Santa team’s transport co-ordinator, has confirmed that Santa and elves will be at The Court Theatre foyer from 9.00am to 1.00 pm on Saturday 13th and Saturday 20th December.
