The Elves’ school

From 18th November to 17th December

From 10.00am to 7.00pm


Have fun with your children in a fun team game that will make them the perfect Christmas court elves!

The Elf School is a fun game that whole families can participate in; a challenge between children and parents and between families for those who prove more accustomed to the skills of a good Santa Claus elf.

By passing various tests and competing “nicely” against each other, you will be able to obtain the much coveted “Elf Apprentice” diploma.

The “School of the Elves” is a performance set up in the La Serra di Govone multipurpose hall, just a stone’s throw from the Castle and Santa’s House and is an activity in which you can participate during the opening days of the event ; it lasts approximately 25 minutes and is suitable for children accompanied by adults.

Dogs are allowed as long as they are kept on a leash. Please note: there will be lights and sounds that could scare them.

Access to the performance has no architectural barriers.
