Father Christmas

Magical ticket sales are on pause while we wait for further clarification during the extended Covid-19 crisis we will issue updates as soon as possible.

The distant tinkle of bells could be heard as Father Christmas and his elves,  Sparkle & Shimmer, magically arrived on his sleigh at the Pier.  Trusty reindeer’s Rudolph, Prancer, Dancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Blitzen & Donner battled through the North Wind so that they could bring joy to well-behaved boys and girls in Father Christmas’s special and unique grotto here, on the theatre stage.

Shimmer the elf is looking forward to welcoming your family to the theatre bar.  She will magically know your child’s name and will invite them to join her and colour a special magical picture,  either give to big man himself or take home as a keepsake. Make one of those all too precious memories with your family,  a personal and intimate experience that the whole family can be a part of with lots of opportunities to take your own keepsake photographs and videos.

Don’t just take our word for it though, read here what families thought in previous years!

“The best Father Christmas grotto we have been to. Also magical for the grown-ups! The backdrop and the setting on the stage was very effective and professional. The elves were a lovely touch and very interactive.”  Mrs Davison.

“It was a wonderful experience, we were not rushed at all and both children were captivated, well done to everyone at Cromer Pier theatre, you made 2 children very happy and did not treat our grandson any differently from any other child. I would highly recommend this experience to everyone especially if you have a child with sensory issues.” – Stephanie.

“The whole experience was utterly fantastic! The elves, the gift, the stage….the big man himself. The whole thing that he knew all the info I had given him!  Would recommend to EVERYONE! Thanks so so much.” – Jemma Hoyle.

“This is the most amazing setting ever, we all love everything about it, please don’t change a thing. It felt welcoming, homely and relaxed.” –  Mrs Tink. 

“We have seen hundreds of Santa’s and I can hand on heart say that we have never ever had such an enjoyable experience!!! The homework from your end to ensure that Father Christmas already has the child’s name and details was fantastic!!!! My little girl was in awe that Father Christmas knew so much about her and what she has been doing this year.” – Mrs Holmes. 

“Absolutely fantastic, everyone acted in character. The setting was great.  Santa was extremely realistic and went along with my boy when he was asked if he knew any Xmas songs they could sing and my boy replied “ba ba black sheep” which they all then sung which made him very happy.” – Amanda Rawson. 

You will be emailed a form, approximately one week before your experience to help us to learn a little bit about your little one so that Father Christmas can talk to them about it,  but ssssh it’s a secret.
