Meet Nanuk the Polar Bear, this year’s festive friend!

Our Santa Experience is back for 2021 with a new festive friend as Santa introduces us to Nanuk the Polar Bear!

This year we’ll be hearing all about Santa’s travels to Northern Alaska where he met his old friend, Nanuk the Polar Bear, and lent him a helping paw…

”Nanuk looked up and saw a smile across the man’s face as he laughed and shouted “Nanuk is that you!?” Nanuk was surprised and realised the smiley jolly face looking down at him was the same one he met many years ago…It was Santa Claus!”

Hear the full story of Nanuk’s adventure during the ‘Elf Tales’ at our Magic of Christmas events!

PLUS all children who have purchased a ticket to take part in the the Santa Experience during our Magic of Christmas events will receive their very own Nanuk soft toy to take home!*
