Based on the original storybooks of founders Mike & Alison Battle, for the first time families will be invited to this magical world to discover the secrets of how the Elven civilisation celebrate their own traditional Christmas; Small and Big Folk are invited to the inaugural Elflet Christmas Celebration!
During this time, Father Christmas will reopen the Toy Factory on 26th December to invite the very best Small Folk to come and make toys for the Elflets (baby elves) who celebrate their own Christmas once all toys have been delivered to the human world.
Upon arrival, all Small Folk are issued with an Elven passport allowing them to travel the secret pathways to magical Lapland - a land you have to see to believe - unlocking a unique and mesmerising immersive and participative adventure.
From working alongside the Elves in the magnificent Toy Factory to visiting Mother Christmas’ kitchen to decorate the Elflets’ favourite gingerbread, this is an extraordinary experience that’s sure to keep spirits bright with plenty of surprise and delight.
The team at LaplandUK has worked tirelessly all year with the relevant authorities to ensure they retain the magic for which they are famed whilst keeping all guests and performers safe. This includes distancing groups from one another and introducing individual family bubbles and a major investment in technology and production design so that the team can still deliver the much-loved show.
Alison Battle, creator of LaplandUK comments: “We are excited to bring more of our stories to life and share with families the secrets of Father Christmas’ homeland in the days following his magical journey. Now families can discover how the elven civilisation celebrate their own traditional Christmas, once the human world has rejoiced. It promises to be a lot of fun and helps give more families the opportunity to make happy memories at the end of this difficult year.”
Mike Battle, creator of LaplandUK comments: “Early on when the pandemic first struck we took the decision to not give up on our purpose to help families honour and celebrate the magic of childhood at Christmastime, believing Father Christmas stands for children and wouldn’t let them down so nor could we.
Uniquely the LaplandUK experience is not about socialising per se, but about celebrating the wonder of your own family. As we build from scratch every year, we were able to redesign and produce a Covid safe show where families remain in their own bubbles throughout. This has required a massive investment in all aspects to retain the magic while keeping everyone safe.”
For 14 years, LaplandUK has enchanted families through its incredible story-telling and attention to detail. This is a must-visit Christmas experience unlike any other in the world.
Tickets for LaplandUK can be purchased here from Monday 30th November 2020. LaplandUK can be found in Whitmoor Forest, Ascot, Berkshire and is easily accessible from London and the south of England.
