Oli Norman, CEO of itison and creator of Elfingrove, who is investing over £1 million to launch Elfingrove said: “We’ve been working on Elfingrove for two years and are beyond excited to finally show it to the people of Glasgow this December. Only me, my daughter and Santa know an ancient secret that we’ll be revealing for the first time at Elfingrove that will challenge everything you know about Christmas…”
The museum will be open as normal each day, but from the 5th December to 23rd December from 5.30pm – midnight the elves take over! With a world class production team of over 60 (and plenty of elves) the show will include a 70-90 minute journey through the world of Elfingrove, where through state of the art technology and magical sound and light installations, dreams become real and the museum and their inhabitants come alive.
With timeslots every 15 minutes from 5.30pm to midnight there’s something for all ages – with inspiration from iconic Christmas movies like Elf, it’s family friendly but definitely not just for the kids, making a brilliant date night, family get together or Christmas night out with your pals or colleagues.
Itison has been working closely with the Kelvingrove museum team to bring the iconic location to life and will also be creating E.L.F - The Elfingrove Legacy Fund - giving back to the local community and donating 1000 tickets to good causes.
