Christmas Star – School Competition

Marble Arch Caves launches Christmas Star Competition for Local Schools

Following the announcement of our brand new Christmas experience, the addition of our Elf Escape Sensory Space to our holiday celebrations, we are looking forward to welcoming visitors from near and far to come along and join the Christmas fun as little elves takeover our grounds.

With this in mind we have decided to run a free competition offering local schools in the district the chance to win a class voucher to join the fun. All of our Christmas plans are in place but we are missing just one thing, 🌟 a star for our Christmas tree 🌟.

We are asking your students to get creative and design their most amazing Christmas Stars. Think outside the box, get crafty with recyclable materials, and the most unique and innovative star will be placed on top of our new Christmas tree within our Elf Escape Sensory Space.

If your star is chosen you will win a free voucher for your entire class for our Elf Escape Takeover event.

Good luck! We can’t wait to see your stars!
