Cuskinny, near Cobh will be bustling with activity from 1st December until Christmas this year. As Christmas approaches the North Pole is bursting at the seams and Santa’s Head Elf has been secretly looking around Cork for a private outpost to make sure the boys and girls of Cork get their toys in time for Christmas. He has also recruited a band of real Cork Elves to run the show. Secret undercover Elves operating Cobh Road Train will re-join their colleagues at the North Pole’s Cork Outpost in Cobh.
Children of all ages have been invited by the Head Elf to visit the Cork Elves and Santa Claus for a fun and imaginative theatrical production at a secret location – Cuskinny Court, Cobh, from 1st December 2013. Boarding the Elf Express, visitors travel to a magical Elf hideaway were they will be greeted by the Cork Elves Sonia O’ Superfast, Christy Ring-a-Rosie, Jimmy Barry-Burpey and friends.
The Cork North Pole Outpost Experience encourages families to take a magical journey back to a time where Christmas was about creating magical memories together. During the 90 minute experience, visitors will assist the Elves as they journey from trainee to fully certified toy maker, through toy making, gift giving and learning how to be a good elf.
Children can learn the secret password to talk to the Elves, check to see if they are on the naughty or nice list and post letters to Santa at the Elf Post Office. Hot drinks and cookies fresh from Mrs Claus’s kitchen will be served to all visitors before going on to meet Santa Claus.
The Cork North Pole Outpost Experience is a fun and imaginative theatrical production bringing to life the real values of a Cork good old fashioned Christmas.
*** Santa Claus will make a special guest appearance in Cobh on Saturday 30th November when children can visit him in his grotto in Cobh Heritage Centre from 12 noon.
