Visit Father Christmas at the Royal Albert Hall

The Story

Father Christmas’ sleigh is parked at the Royal Albert Hall but he has run out of Christmas Spirit to fuel it. He and his magical friends from the North Pole need Little Helpers to visit the Hall and collect enough Christmas Spirit to help him fly his magic sleigh on Christmas Eve.

On this delightful Christmas adventure, children and their families will be taken on an interactive journey through enchanted spaces within the Hall, guided by magical characters including a joyful Elf and a mystical and musical Snow Queen, before meeting Santa himself at his sleigh.

Santa’s little helpers will be captivated by a series of interactive games, hear stories and songs, and enjoy exciting activities that each tie into an essential part of this Christmas adventure – while meeting fantastic characters and letting their imaginations run wild.
