Children will be able to help Santa and his elves this Christmas in The Parade.

Take your budding little elves to the Elf Grotto in front of Debenhams where they will get rosy cheeks and an elf hat, then join the elf treasure trail.

Just follow the simple clues on the treasure trail form and visit stores in The Parade to collect pictures of Christmas gifts. Once all the pictures have been found, budding elves can return to the grotto to collect a graduation certificate and be transformed into a fully-qualified elf.

The event will run on Saturday and Sunday.
