Great News!!
We are thrilled to let everyone know!
We’ve just had a letter from the man himself… EEeekk!… He writes to tell us that he so enjoyed his visit with us last year (as he has done every year since we begged him to come) and so pleased to have met so many of the boys and girls on his nice list (yes, checked twice) that he’s coming back to us again this year!
We think part of the reason he likes it here so much is because Rudolph and all his friends have great feeding on the side of the mountain, building themselves up for the task ahead, and the elves play hide and seek in the tunnels when we’re not watching (we see them on the cameras but don’t tell them that! It’s a secret!)
If you’d like to check which list you’re on then we can help you out with that.
Santa will be bringing 2 Elves with him, they have the list (we don’t even get to see it) and after you’ve visited with Santa and had a wee chat with him, the elf can confirm your place on the NICE LIST (cos you are on the NICE LIST, aren’t you?) and even give you a certificate so you can prove it!
Okay and because we love to party and so Santa and his guests know how much we love them, we’re having some more fun going on as well. We’d really love to have you here so you can help us party!
Fred, the Party Professor will be here, we’re hoping Minnie will be with him again this year because she was so much fun last year! Thank you Fred & Minnie!
And of course, Bozo the clown. Did you know, he and Santa go way back? Yep, Bozo got into clowning and magic on Santa’s advice, reckoned it was perfect for him, getting folks laughing!
What’s a party without a little paint? Veronique and Anke, our very own artistic masterminds will be here to help you finish off your Christmas party look with your special face painting requests!
Ooohh….. And we’re doing a competition this year for the “MOST INVENTIVE or ORIGINAL” Christmas Costume. Under suggestion from the elves, they really wanted this. Maybe they want to update their outfits and are looking for ideas! How cool if your Christmas look inspired them!
Of course, we can’t tell you everything that’s going on – where’s the fun surprise in that? So you’ll just HAVE TO come and visit Santa in his underground grotto, receive your goodies and help us to PARTY!!!
Booking on-line is essential @

We look forward to welcoming you all along to a fun filled festive family day in Arigna
