Santa Visits


Santa Visits by The Play People are back for 2020 and covid secure! 


The 30 minute visit from Father Christmas and Miss Christmas is £50.


What will happen during my Santa Visit:

-The 30 minute visit from Father Christmas and his helper is personalised to you and your family. Santa will surprise the children by reading out their Christmas lists from his hand written notes as well as their achievements this year and any personal details you would like to include.

-Santa’s helper will read a Christmas story to act out and share with the children.

-They will have a snowball fight with fake snowballs!

-Father Christmas can also give out your presents.

-You can of course take photos and videos throughout the visit and we will pose for socially distanced photos.

-We will also have a Christmas sing along to spread some Christmas cheer!

 We had a great time hosting all of our Santa Visits this year despite all of the changing restrictions! Thank you to all of the families who had us visit them and be part of their Christmas celebrations!

‘Another great visit from Santa and his helper. They make it so special and to see the kids faces, its magic!

A big thank you!

Lisa, Harlow, Dec2017



‘Firstly, your communication was excellent, Santa & his helper arrived on time and looked very impressive. The six children were aged between 2 and 6 years old and they were enthralled! Their faces were heart warming to see as Santa was so convincing, as well as being funny and kind. Santa’s lovely helper read the children a Christmas story and along with Santa, sang a funny song that amused the kids. Thank you so much, they made this Christmas special for the children and for us’.

‘Our thanks again to Miss Christmas and Father Christmas, the girls loved the time they spent with you both. The girls were very impressed that Father Christmas knew about what they had been up to throughout the year!

Take a look at some testimonials from families we had the pleasure of visiting at Christmas 2015:

‘Our visit by Father Christmas and Miss Christmas 5 sleeps before Christmas has completely made Christmas for our two children. They were absolutely captivated and amazed to have Father Christmas in their home, sitting on their sofa with them, personally talking about each of their achievements, their hopes for presents, admiring their home made decorations on the tree, reading their favourite Christmas story and listening to songs that they learnt from their school nativity and carol services.  It was simply a unique and incredible experience for our children and the whole family. We have taken plenty of photos and have some lovely ones of us all, thank you to Miss Christmas for taking those!

After the visit ended both children wrote down how amazing it was to have Father Christmas  come to see us, as well as cuddling the cushion he had sat on, and saying, several times, just how amazing it was that he was here!

Thank you for such an exceptional experience and the whole visit was so well organised and seamless, we all thoroughly enjoyed the visit, thank you again!

We will not forget this and I know our children will always remember it.

What a fantastic experience, thank you very much indeed for all your help!’

“A visit at home from the man himself sounded fun, but the kids were blown away by it. The smiles on their faces brought the magic of Christmas home. The Play People were so helpful and perfectly organised arriving with our posted letters to Santa and presents. I highly recommend them, worth every penny and more!”       Kirstie, Harlow, December 2014
