    Christmas Workshop
    T’was Night Before Christmas

    A Very Special Seasonal Experience for Schools

    Calling all schools. This December, join us for our special Christmas workshop.

    Our Christmas experience for schools begins with a magical tour of Santa Street. Where your pupils can feel the magic of Christmas come to life!

    Deep within a magical kingdom, you will find Snowtown. At the heart of Snowtown there is a small winding alley, an enchanting little maze of shop fronts that bring to life the long lost, beloved tradition of Christmas windows. And this, is “Santa Street”. On a wander through this narrow laneway you will discover a series of charming, seasonal window displays, twinkling lights, Christmas characters and incredible seasonal scents and smells. Best of all, at the end of the street you will discover Santa’s Workshop. Here you can peek through the windows and watch Santa and his elves get up to all kinds of fun, and some mischief, as they prepare for the big night!

    But your festive journey isn’t over yet, venture through the last doorway on Santa Street and be magically transported to the rooftops of Snowtown. Feel the chill wind and catch a snowflake or two as you look out into the crisp night sky, just as Santa sets off on his epic journey while the clock approaches midnight on Christmas Eve!

    Our Storyteller will then escort your pupils to the enchanted Story Book. Using some seasonal magic our giant story book will conjure up words and pictures to recount the festive tale, “T’was the Night before Christmas”, in a very special interactive story session. As the story draws to a close the visit will culminate in a surprise visit by Santa himself who will lead the group back over the rooftops of Santa Street to pose for a photo with the whole class.

    Our Christmas workshop for schools is running from Monday 2 until Friday 20 December. This workshop is 30mins long and can accommodate up to 30 pupils. A visit to W5 including this workshop costs £5.50 per pupil. Accompanying adults within recommended ratios are free of charge. To book your place please ring 028 9046 7793/7790 or email bookings@w5online.co.uk.
