An Elf’s Wish:

An original adaptation of the traditional Father Christmas story & his whimsical elf folk by Nevendon Manor Events


This winter, we invite you to experience our first ever Christmas themed event!


There are normally too many grisly ghouls lingering from Halloween but this year the Elf-folk have taken over at Nevendon Manor, spreading Christmas spirit all over the grounds in order to offer a magical, festive experience for your family.


You will embark on a unique, continuous trail around the grounds, guided by our resident clumsy elf ‘Brumble’, who needs your help to make a Christmas wish come true. ‘An Elf’s Wish’ is an original adaptation of the Father Christmas story & his whimsical elves. You will, no doubt bump into plenty of quirky characters along the way (perhaps even the big man himself!) as you discover that there’s more to Christmas than just presents and Turkey!


  • Trail duration: approx. 60min
  • Immersive outdoor theatre
  • Interactive activities embedded within the story
  • Plenty of characters throughout the trail (including Santa & his furry 4 legged friends, Mrs Claus, Snow Queen & lots of themed elves)
  • Continually dressed grounds with Detailed sets
  • Original storyline with family oriented moral undertones embracing the wonderment of childhood
  • 1 ticket price for all ages – our family events are designed to entertain big kids & little kids alike. Babes in arms are free


This experience is not your average Christmas grotto or a ‘copy-cat Lapland UK’. You will be at the centre of an intimate live Christmas-themed theatre production as you are lead on a heart-warming journey full of excitement, wonderment & Christmas spirit. If you have been to any of our other family events then you will have some idea of what to expect. Take the trail through our beautifully themed sets somewhere between fantasy & reality, offering a level of detail & interaction that often leaves guest feeling they are ‘part of the production’ or that they have ‘just stepped into a dream world’.



The Experience:

  • Find out your Elf name & learn how to be an Elf at Elf school
  • Make a Christmas wish at the wishing well
  • Help our clumsy Elf ‘Brumble’ make his wish come true
  • Discover the secret history of the Elves from the Elf-Elder in the ruined castle
  • Visit the post-master elves in the wish-room & Post a letter via North Pole Express
  • Meet the Snow Queen and help her make it snow
  • Join the lumberjack elves dressing real Christmas trees & help them turn on the lights
  • Take a tour of the toy-making room with Mrs Claus and see the skilled elves hard at work
  • Find out what powers Santa’s sleigh & help the mechanic-elves to get her running smooth!
  • Meet 2 of Santa’s beautiful Reindeers & help the Reindeer-Wrangler Elf remember the rest of the Reindeers names
  • Take a stroll with Santa to his private Essex cabin retreat & learn the true spirit of Christmas. A keep sake gift relevant to story will be given (not a wrapped toy)


Optional Extras:

  • Real Reindeer food available for purchase at Entrance to feed Santa’s Reindeers & magic feed to take home for Christmas eve preparations
  • Face-Painting & glitter designs available whilst you wait
  • Capture the moment with a photograph of you & Santa, Available for purchase at end of experience
  • Various refreshments & themed stalls at Front of house TBC



Don’t be a Scrooge this Winter, set the mood for the festive season & treat your family to a magical experience they will not soon forget.
