Christmas elves through the ages and some favourite friends

New Exhibition in Gallery 1

Father Christmas has lost some of his elves here at the Dean Heritage Centre. He needs you, this Christmas, to help find these mischievous elves and send them home, to the North Pole, to help Father Christmas and the rest of the elves prepare for Christmas. Join us for a Christmas treasure hunt to find these elves, every child will receive a gift included in their admission price.

Visitors will also be able to enjoy Christmas themed crafts, our woodland Gruffalo trail and also a unique opportunity to meet the Gruffalo and Gruffalo's child for a selfie or two with our favourite friend.

We're confident our visitors will manage to find these mischievous elves in time, so we'll keep the 'home fires burning'. The Foresters Cottage will be nice and cosy for when Father Christmas re-joins us all in 2017 in time to wish us all a very Merry Christmas.

Children who help us to send the mischievous elves back to help Father Christmas will receive a coupon for 50% of their admission to come back and join Father Christmas and his elf by our fireside. Coupons valid between Saturday 16th December to Sunday 24th December.
