About the Event

An Enchanted Encounter with Father Christmas and His Elves at Kings Dock in Liverpool

Nutmeg the Elf Needs Your Help!

In the heart of Christmas-Shire, a wondrous place where dreams come true, the elves are bustling with preparations for the most magical day of the year.
Father Christmas and his dedicated team of elves are working tirelessly to ensure everything is ready for the big day. All the letters must be read and cataloged, presents must be selected and wrapped, and most important of all, they must ensure the sleigh is in full working order, ready for its incredible journey around the world.
And don’t forget the one special ingredient needed to make all this possible. Magic!
But this year, something unexpected has happened – the reserves of Christmas magic have dwindled! Nutmeg the Elf, the beloved keeper of the magic, has discovered a mysterious leak and urgently needs your help to replenish the magic stores.
