Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Believe Christmas

Tainted Ltd, an Events & Entertainment company based in County Durham are delighted to announce that they are partnering with Ramside Estates Group, Metro Radio & TFM to bring the BELIEVE Christmas adventure to the grounds of Hardwick Hall Hotel this coming December. BELIEVE Christmas is a FULL day outdoor family Christmas pantomime situated in the grounds of Hardwick Hall Hotel.

Although in it’s 1st year under the new name BELIEVE Christmas it has become a much loved ‘enchanted christmas’ experience in the North East Christmas calendar, attracting thousands of families over the years.

Tainted Ltd are delighted to be partnering with Ramside Estates Group, Metro Radio & TFM to make BELIEVE Christmas one of the most sought after family Christmas adventures in the North East.

Elf Sparkle, the MD Elf of Believe Christmas is the magical inspiration for this event. What makes BELIEVE Christmas different from the rest is that Elf Sparkle cares about every person that enters her site, she wants to see the magic in the eyes of all family members and it’s her mission to ensure that families go away with Christmas memories to last a lifetime.

Unlike other Christmas experiences BELIEVE Christmas is different every year, although you will see the same jolly giddy elves and Santa Tipi’s (to keep you warm and snug) the Christmas characters and presents from Santa are never the same. It truly is a magical family Christmas experience, here’s some more info on the event itself:

BELIEVE Christmas is based in the grounds of Hardwick Hall Hotel County Durham. A Magical Christmas Adventure for the whole family. New for this year, come and join us for a FULL day experience to soak up even more fairytale Christmas magic.

It is a FULL day creating memories with your loved ones to treasure for a lifetime! Joining your chosen group, complete with your own Elf Guide to lead you around the Elf Tipi Village, you will meet all the Elves who will entertain you with a mixture of interactive activities and performances. For 2019 come and help Santa’s Toymakers, meet the Reindeer, walk through the Enchanted Woods, discover hidden excitement in the trees, go to a new Elf School, make a lovely Christmas treat to take home, join in the Panto with Sugarplum Mary in her Kitchen, write your letter in the official North Pole Post Office, Storytelling in the Magic Circle and an exciting visit to Santa in his Laplandish Tipi next to his fire where he magically knows all about each child! Mix this all in with the whole new Apres Ski Lodge complete with Bavarian Christmas street food to add to a whole new Enchanted Christmas. The day will run straight through but will give you an hour’s break at lunchtime to eat, relax and refresh for the afternoon. In partnership with The Ramside Estates, Metro Radio and TFM.
