Mission Christmas: the Clausometer Catastrophe

25th November - 24th December 2023
The Historic Dockyard Chatham

Have you ever wondered why The Historic Dockyard Chatham closes every December? For over 400 years, Dockyard workers past and present have been keeping a heavily guarded Christmas secret.

All over the world dockyards just like those at Chatham are on high alert at Christmas time, for deep in the Historic Dockyard is a secret sub station, hidden from plain sight. Here a crew of ingenious elves are stationed, poised to jump into action should Father Christmas run into trouble with his sleigh, need some help with his Santa-Nav or carefully pin-point a child staying away from home.

This December you’re invited to step into the centre of this secret world and help Mrs Claus save Christmas from catastrophe. Your little ones will need to master the magical skills and learn the elf code before graduating from Elf Academy and solving the mystery of the missing clausometer.

Once you’ve saved Christmas, your journey will end in a magical meeting with Father Christmas. He’ll be so pleased with the help you’ve given Mrs Claus, he’ll present your little ones with a special gift to take home.
