The Ministry of Christmas Family Events


Father Christmas needs you! There’s a shortage of magic at Santa’s secret London HQ and only YOU can help!

A massive snowstorm over Lapland is causing chaos. They will NEVER get everything ready in time for Christmas Eve. They need to make more magic and only you can help!
The Ragged School Museum has been Santa’s very secret hideaway for over 150 years.
Did you know that In 1840 Prince Albert brought the first Christmas Trees to England? Well he did. And, since then, Father Christmas has been using the Ragged School as his C.O.C.O. (= Centre of Christmas Operations). This authentic building in London’s historic East End is unchanged since Victorian times and, at Christmas; it becomes the possibly most important place on Earth.
The problem is, this year Santa needs more magic….FAST! So come on over to the Ragged School and help him.
Visitors to The Ministry of Christmas will enjoy so much more than a grotto experience. Children will become honorary elves for the day, receiving an actual briefing from Santa’s Chief Elf; helping plan the reindeer’s route across the globe on Christmas Eve; and taking part in a host of magical interactive activities to help the elves prepare for the biggest night of the year.

We welcome a maximum of 20 children per 60 minute session and in order to make the experience as special as possible for each child, the children will be split in to smaller groups of no more than seven children.

Most importantly of all, each group will enjoy an audience with the REAL Father Christmas! During this time there will be an opportunity for each child to speak to Santa and pose for family photographs with him.

The Ministry of Christmas is PERFECT for children aged 2-102 so we look forward to seeing you at this unforgettable and uniquely festive experience.

Come and meet Santa … and help him save Christmas!
The Ministry of Christmas is also available for exclusive bookings solely for your party of friends and family. For more information please get in touch.
