Take part in an elfy Christmas mystery!

One of Santa’s elves has gone missing with a Christmas present. There are, however, far too many presents and elves for Santa to keep track of.

Help Santa by solving the clues to find the elf and missing present, in a gentle walking route suitable for adults and children that takes in landmarks and places of interest around Wakefield city centre.

The answers are names and dates that you will find as you follow the route.

Solve the clues to eliminate elves and presents. At the end you should be left with one elf and one present.

Drop off your completed entry in our elf post-box in the library in Wakefield One for your chance to win a family Cineworld ticket.
