Duke of York Square Santa helper Switch-On Christmas


Quest to find Santa’s Special Helper

Santa needs a Special Helper for the Duke of York Square Christmas Lights Switch on. Do you know of a child who would like to ride with him in his sleigh pulled by real-life reindeer, turn on the Christmas lights and be the first to visit Santa in his grotto?

Could this be you or one of your friends?  Do you know of someone who has achieved something really special this year? Helped someone in a special way?  Or has an extra special wish that needs Santa’s help to come true?

If you would like to nominate someone as Santa’s Special Helper, please email Santa’s Elves c/o contact@dukeofyorksquare.com by Friday 30th October providing the information requested below.

Santa’s Special Helper will be notified on Tuesday, 3rd November. Please ensure that nominees are available to join us on Saturday 7th November from 3pm.

Good luck!
