It’s time to release your inner ELF!

Forget presents, tinsel and turkey. What could make Christmas more magical than a visit to see the elves and meeting Santa Claus, the man himself?

Come and experience the magic and sparkle of Christmas with fabulous festive fun for all the family at the award-winning Ark Poole Park this year.

From Saturday 25th November to Sunday 24th December, The Ark will be overrun with elves as they set up elf-camp to meet, greet and entertain visitors big and small.

Meet Santa’s little helpers at the Elf Workshop and enjoy an experience that’s sure to get you in the festive mood:

• Dear Santa Claus … The Ark’s fun and friendly elves will be on hand to assist with letter writing to the big man himself. Prepare to learn the elf-abet!

• Delectable Delights to take home - sticky fingers and the sweet smell of candy can only mean one thing … it’s Christmas! Unleash your creativity with The Ark’s gingerbread decorating activity - a seasonal must!

• Get Crafty – Christmas craft at its festive best! Make a truly unique hanging keepsake for your tree which can be enjoyed for years to come

• Don’t forget Rudolph! Have fun making reindeer food to take home and sprinkle on Christmas Eve in anticipation of a visit from Santa’s furriest friends.

• Meet Santa and receive a goodie bag to take home.
