Christmas is coming and Santa’s elves are preparing for a busy weekend at Tower Ramparts shopping centre.

A team of elves will be manning a magical machine full of wheels and wizardry to help children create amazing Christmas decorations as part of the centre’s festive activities.

Santa himself will be in residence at the Centre at the Bear Garden on the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, December 6 and 7, while his team of elvish helpers will be setting up their Do It Your Elf machine.

Chief Elf Kate Statham, of Bakehouse Productions said: “We will be setting up in one of the units and children and their parents will be able to just drop in and have fun with us.”

Father Christmas will be at The Bear Garden on Saturday and Sunday, December 6 and 7.

The Do It Your Elf machine will be at Unit Five on the Centre’s Lower Mall from 11am to 4pm on three successive Saturdays, December 6, December 13, and December 20, and then on through every day to Christmas Eve.
