Become your best Elf this November at intu Chapelfield Family Club
Sponsored Guest Blog
It takes a lot of preparation to organise the perfect Christmas with one man in particular having an extremely busy time in the weeks leading up to the big day. So; to give Father Christmas some extra help this year, intu Chapelfield in Norwich is recruiting lots of new elves and putting them through some essential training this November at its Elf University.
From Saturday 2 November to Sunday 1 December, intu Chapelfield’s family club will be training up apprentice elves of all ages and equipping them with the skills to become a fully qualified cheeky little elf.
Throughout the month-long curriculum there will be a packed programme of fun festive activities for mums, dads and children too, as everyone learns what it takes to prepare for the big day.
Newly trained elves will then take part in a special graduation ceremony on 1 December, when Santa himself will fly-in on his sleigh to hand out the certificates.
Sheridan Smith, marketing manager at intu Chapelfield says; “Join our happy band of excitable elves and learn how to be your best elf this Christmas, as our intu family club teaches families how to become one of Santa’s little helpers.
“Starting on 2 November, we’re making the magic of Christmas last a little longer and giving Santa some extra helping hands to ensure everything runs super smoothly come Christmas Eve. Our festive masterclasses include an elf clothing workshop, lessons in how to prepare festive food and testing out the latest inventions to help get the presents packed and delivered on time, at the North Pole laboratory. There’ll be lots of mischievous behaviour and fun to be had as our elves share their magic.”
All the Elf University workshops will take place outside Boots on the Lower Ground Mall. Free for intu Chapelfield’s family club members, you can sign up online here.
