Tucked just behind our new run of stalls in Rochester Christmas Market, under the impressive silhouette of Rochester Castle Keep, Mrs Claus and some of Santa’s most trusted elves have been busy working hard to bring a tiny slice of Christmas splendour to share with children aged 4 to 11 years old. Younger children are welcome but must have a paid for ticket to take part in the activities.

On arrival, children and their adults* will be greeted by Santa’s elves, who will guide them to Mrs Claus’ snug, where they will be told a magical Christmas story.

They will then visit the elves’ workshop. With the help of the elves, they will choose and decorate a Christmas tree decoration to sprinkle with some Christmas magic to take home with them.

Finally, they will enter Mrs Claus’ kitchen, where the elves are baking up a storm of gingerbread people**, ready for the children to decorate with their choice of toppings, to then be wrapped and taken away for a festive treat.

Saturday 25 November SOLD OUT, all other dates still available

Tickets: £10.00 per child.
