An online theatrical adventure for the whole family

Deep beneath the city a secret world full of wonder awaits; where wizards bake endless gingerbread, goblins bottle festive cheer, and there’s a whole department devoted to detangling fairy-lights!


Welcome to the Ministry of Make Believe…

But recently, strange things have been happening here at the Ministry. From nose-less snowmen, to exploding baubles, and a forest of bald Christmas trees – things are not quite right… It’s almost like someone (or something) is trying to sabotage Christmas!

Together with our Top Agent – a kind, clever, clumsy elf – you’ll need to help to solve the mystery and save the day! The Ministry of Make Believe needs you!

This exciting interactive adventure gave audiences access to all 7 episodes  accompanied by a interactive Fact File filled with 13 artefacts sent directly to their home.
