Book Your Live Santa Video Call Today

This year, Santa’s doing things a little differently! He’s had time to learn some new skills and invites you to have a one to one video call, and join in his 32 day interactive Christmas adventure.

Santa will of course be visiting homes as usual on Christmas Eve, but as we all know – we need to be fast asleep for that!

Delivered digitally. Enjoyed in the real world. Here's how it works...

Choose a live video call or to just take part in the Santa HQ festive adventure.

The adventure begins on 25th November with your introduction to the North Pole elves and our very own Elf Greenhorn the Forest Elf, desperate to qualify as one of the Santa HQ elves. Children will be offered the chance to help Elf Greenhorn learn about the real joy of Christmas through an engaging new activity every day.

The Santa HQ daily video-led activities are filled with exciting and varied content such as singalongs, dancing, arts & crafts (great for family gifts!), storytelling and outdoor exploring!

We encourage and inspire children to take part in Santa HQ, both with their families and independently (a great opportunity for grown-ups to kick back with a hot chocolate!).

Build a photo journal of your Christmas memories.

Along the way you will be invited to upload photos of your adventure and these will automatically be saved in your own personalised digital photo journal to record the special memories you make. The journal will be available as a ready-to-print file to share with your friends and family.

Enjoy your very own video call with the real Santa!

Santa will have already seen all the wonderful tasks you have been documenting in your journal so he will be ready to discuss!

The Santa HQ elves will also ask specific questions when you book your time to help Santa remember some special facts and/or recent events (Santa is rather old now and his memory does need jogging every now and then).

What you get with Santa HQ

A new activity every day

The Santa HQ app introduces a brand new theatrical video every day with each activity bringing Elf Greenhorn a step closer to achieving his North Pole elf status in time for Christmas Eve!

There will be games, challenges, arts and crafts, storytelling, dancing and singalongs. Not to mention the entertaining storyline and lovable elves.

A digital photo journal you can keep forever

With each new activity you will be invited to upload a photo of you completing a task, of one of your creations or of a special moment you have captured as a family.

At the end you’ll have a full digital photo journal you can download and keep or print as a great gift for loved ones!

A two-way personalised video call with Santa

Bring Santa into your home this year for a pre-Christmas Eve visit! He won’t get a mince pie but the children can show him where they will be hanging their stockings and ask him the questions they’ve been saving up all year.

A personalised chat delivered safely and securely through the Santa HQ app.

A focus on fun, education and wellbeing

Fun is first and our elves deliver this in abundance but behind the scenes we have worked tirelessly with the experts to ensure our content is educational and includes powerful messages of mindfulness for today’s children and families.

There has never been a more vital time for us to connect and focus on the things that really matter to us. The Santa HQ journey is a unique opportunity to explore concepts such as gratitude, kindness and love.

Professional, trained performers

With our beloved pantomimes and Christmas performances cancelled this year, we are thrilled to have created a way to bring the magic of theatre to children this Christmas.

Our priority is to ensure that this experience is presented safely and professionally. The cast are all professionally trained, highly experienced actors and all those who interact directly with children have been DBS checked.

A safe space to experience the joy of Christmas

Your unique Santa HQ journey and everything you upload to your photo journal is completely secure. The whole experience is based on secure servers, running over HTTPS. Images are stored on private servers, that can only be viewed with your authenticated user account via expiring links.

Our payment provider ‘Stripe’ allows us to transact securely. We don’t store any payment details or physical addresses and we never share your data with anyone.
