Families are invited to meet ‘Father Christmas and Friends’ at EGO Arts Venue this Christmas!

Our family favourite Santa visit, Father Christmas and Friends is set to return to EGO Arts Venue in Cook Street on Saturday 17th December for one week only! A winter trail through a magical Christmas wonderland awaits families in Coventry this Yuletide.

Families are invited to join Ivy Pixie Fairy on an adventure through the Christmas trail for a very special visit to see Father Christmas. Along the way they will meet Widow Winterberry the dormouse in her cosy home, Figgy Fancypants champion Christmas Cracker maker, Poinsettia the singing snowman, Frosty Jack the Ice Prince and Eggnog the Chief Elf !


Co-Artistic Director of EGO Performance Company, Georgina Egan, commented “We wanted to create something truly magical this Christmas for children in Coventry and the local area so we are pleased to bring back Father Christmas and Friends after it’s huge success in 2014. It’s a 40 minute long, interactive experience for children of all ages, joining Ivy Pixie on a magical winter trail to meet Santa. Along the way the children meet all of Santa’s friends, they dance with the Snowman, throw Snowballs at Frosty Jack and much more. Upon finding the Grotto, each child individually meets Santa, where you can take your own photo and listen as Santa gives your child a personal message from the nice list and each child receives a gift if they’ve been good this year!”

“This is so fabulous. We went this morning and it’s far from your usual quick sit with Santa and go.  It’s a magical journey from the heart. I smiled the whole way round and the kids loved that Santa knew so much about them. A really lovely journey!” : A Mumsnet review.
