Father Christmas Home Visits

Our magical Santa is available for pre-Christmas  home visits in the London and Essex areas of the UK.

Just imagine..

There you are, at home with the children, all snug and cozy. They’re wishing Christmas Day would hurry up and come . They’re so fed up with waiting and just wish something would happen soon!
But you have a very special surprise in store. A surprise that’s been kept very, very secret.

Suddenly, there’s a knock at the door! Who can it be?

Erik The Elf

Santa can be booked to visit your family in your home, daytime or evening, at a pre-booked time. If you would like Santa to hand out your gifts during the visit, then we are happy to meet you a short time before your visit. We recommend this, as it helps keeps the magic going.

Your visit will last for at least one hour, during which Santa will chat away with the children ''and there's always a song and a dance too!  While he's there he will happily pose for your unhurried and unlimited photos and video. Wonderful!

Mums.. Get Together and Save!

Our price is per house call. Why not spread the cost between friends and 
neighbours and have a party!

Corporate Christmas Events, Theatres, Clubs and Associations

Santa can be on hand for end of year prize giving and presentations at your company 'do'. Perhaps your club holds an annual Christmas party for the member’s children or grandchildren?

December is also traditionally Pantomime season and Father Christmas can be hired as a walkabout act in theatre foyers and Christmas functions for 'Meet and Greet' duties.

Christmas Fairs, Fetes and Markets


An appearance by Father Christmas at seasonal Fetes, Fairs and Christmas Markets is always a guaranteed crowd pleaser. It's also a handy distraction for the kids, while you are buying that secret prezzie.

Santa can work a Grotto area you've arranged or better still, why not have Santa as a wonderful walkabout.

With his candy cane walking stick in hand Santa will take a leisurely stroll around your event, chatting with your visitors and posing for impromptu photos. But keep an eye on him; he likes nothing more than sampling some of the tasty goodies that are always on offer!

Photographic Studio Modelling and Christmas Advertising Campaigns

You will be hard pushed to find a Santa who takes as much time and pride in his appearance. Standard preparation time before an appearance is well over two hours. Everything must be just right, if the end result is to be realistic and believable.

This attention to detail and totally believable presentation make Magical Santa a perfect model for Christmas photography and seasonal advertising campaigns. Santa will be delighted to pop back from the North Pole any time of year for such engagements.

The Best Santa Hire For Your Event

Magical Santa is available to hire Christmas events throughout London and Essex UK.

When you book Magical Santa for your Christmas event, you can be sure you are hiring an experienced Father Christmas, who is as near to the real thing as you can get. Magical Santa arrives, performs and leaves in character, for the duration of the appearance. 

With over a decade of experience in both indoor and outdoor Christmas events, meeting and greeting, chatting and posing for photos, you can be guaranteed that your visitors will be utterly delighted by Santa.

Time and time again, parents have been thrilled by Santa's genuine and relaxed manner towards their children. The children 'Believe' because he believes.

Magical Santa's 'Tinsel Time Tricycle'

For larger or outdoor venues and by special request, Santa can arrive on his unique 'Tinsel Time Tricycle' and make a few slow circuits of your event, stopping frequently for the usual photos.

trikeinstreet.jpgThe Tricycle is a real head turning attraction and makes a wonderful backdrop to photos. It's also functional, because it has storage space for any handouts and xmas freebies you might want to offer your visitors.

It is beautifully decorated, including over 200 lights and even has two hessian sacks on board, one for Boys and one for Girls. There’s even onboard music. All the best Christmas tunes of course!

The 'Tinsel Time Tricycle' can be brought to any Christmas venue in the Essex and London areas, however there is an additional cost to our normal rates.

Please enquire for more details.

Christmas Retail Openings, In-Store Grottos

While Santa is sadly not available for full time retail Grotto work, he is available to hire for those special one-off retail events and launch days. He can also be hired for store openings, toy shop promotional days or as a shopping mall walkabout Santa. He is equally at home in small shops or large department stores.

Christmas Parades and Big Light Switch On's

Who better to lead the countdown to the start of the Christmas season and press 'The Big Button', than the big guy in red ..the man himself ..Santa Claus! 

Magical Santa absolutely loves a big Christmas extravaganza and can be easily placed within your entertainment schedule, filling space between your other booked acts.

He is equally at home working your crowd as a walkabout photo opportunity and of course is always very honoured to be asked flick the big switch at public tree lighting ceremonies and at the switching on of Christmas illuminations. And don't even get him started on his love of Christmas parades and carnivals. He'll want to be at the front you know.

An experienced and confident performer is a must for a Father Christmas hired by local town and Borough Councils planning their Christmas events.

Schools, Nurseries and Community Christmas Parties

From Pre-School Groups and Nurseries to Nursing Homes, our Santa really has that gentle and personal touch. Santa understands that some folk are perhaps a little shy or nervous, especially children who are meeting Santa for the first time. 

A good Santa is never forceful with timid little people. He knows to let them come to him when they are ready and of course ninety-nine times out of a hundred, they do. Even if it means a few attempts at coming back. Once they've had a chat, then often the trouble is getting them back!

Santa can always spot the ones peeking from behind Mum or Dads legs and gives them a quick peek-a-boo finger waggle to let them know he's friendly. Santa loves a little chatterbox too..Well it takes one to know one!
He's always very interested in what Children have to say to him.

December Weddings, Engagements and Anniversaries

Christmas time is such a wonderful time to propose or tie the knot. What Christmas themed wedding would be complete without a visit from Santa, who can be on hand to welcome your guests and perhaps oversee the giving of gifts?
If desired, he would be absolutely honoured to appear in photos of your big day. And don't forget to invite him to the anniversary celebrations!
