Check availability for Santa's Magical Workshop (opens in a new window)

Santa and an elf sit under a snow covered sign for Santa's Magical Workshop.

Join in for an afternoon of festive fun with Santa’s elves performing a 45 minute musical magical illusion show in their quest to find Santa.

After a big game of ‘hide and seek’ in Santa’s workshop, Santa can't be found anywhere after searching the North Pole high and low.  Help Effy the Elf on his hunt for the big man!  Santa’s Magical Workshop show takes you on a Christmas journey full of fun, mischief and festive mayhem.  You won’t want to miss it.  

Your little ones will be greeted by Chief Elf upon arrival and given their Festive Fun Box of snacks, a little treat, and reindeer food for Christmas Eve.  ​​​​​​Before the show begins you’ll be given the chance to write your letter to Santa which you can post in the magical Golden Post Box.  The show lighting, sound and production visuals, including a massive LED screen and lasers, gives a real wow to your magical afternoon.
