Our virtual visit videos are approximately 15-20 minutes long.
During the virtual visit the children will get an insider view of the North Pole, they’ll meet Mrs Claus, magical Elves and see ‘behind the scenes’ of all of the Christmas preparations.
You can secure a personalised visit by booking and paying for your visit before the 18th of November for FREE, if you would like your visit personalised past this point then we can arrange this for a charge of £30 per video.
We aim to have your books wrapped and dispatched by our elves and sent to your school within 21 days of your payment clearing (please note for cheque payment that we will need the cheque to clear before we dispatch your books).
We will send your video within 21 days of payment clearing. We always aim to send out quicker than this, however each personalised video needs to be rehearsed, filmed and edited before being sent to you so it can take a little time to work this magic.
If you have not opted for a personalised video then we can get your video sent out much quicker.
The elf visit is free. There is no charge, the only cost is the cost of the wrapped book for each child, which we offer for just £1.50. The books normally retail at between £4 and £9 each.
Yes, our visits are suitable for all ages, we find that the older children like to experience the elf visit with their younger siblings and even if they are ‘non believers’ they love to get involved in the jokes, magic and stories.
Of course, children with SEN will be able to access the virtual visit fully, if they need different books then we have a space for you to record those on our booking form.
No. Once your order is complete, we cannot amend it. If in doubt, please overestimate your numbers in the form.
Our elves are professional actors who have experience of entertaining children and large groups.
Yes of course, you can watch the virtual visit whenever you choose, whether that’s in assembly or in classrooms or sent to children at home if they have to self isolate.
The children all get a story book/ novel. These are all suitable for their age, gender and key stage. We have collated our collection of books with advice from primary school teachers to make sure that they suit the reading levels of the children.
We use high quality books from top publishers such as Usborne, Hachette and Penguin. The books are all suitable for the reading level of the year group of the children. Please click here to see a sample of our books.
In short, no. The money that we get from the publishing companies is how we pay our elves, so I’m afraid we cannot offer a free visit without the children receiving the book. If you’d like a visit without books, please get in touch for a quote.
We have a minimum of 30 children.
We don’t charge for our visits, only for the books. We get a small amount of commission from the publishing companies for buying such large quantities of books and this enables us to pay our elves.
No, not at all. Our assembly performances are completely focused on the magic of Christmas and we have no religious affiliation.
All children regardless of their culture, ethnicity or religion enjoy our elf visits. Our visits don’t focus on the ‘Christian Christmas story’ but instead on the magic of the North Pole and Christmas.
We cover the entire UK and the world.
The only added cost is the courier fee of £20 which ensures that your books are delivered to school safely with one of our trusted couriers, ready for your elf’s arrival.
The books will arrive in individual recyclable National Elf Service bags. Each will be sealed with a sticker indicating which year group it is for.
We aim for all of our books to be gender neutral. However, this is not always possible which is why we ask for the boys/girls numbers incase there is a gender bias in the book.
