Christmas in Chesterfield

Christmas in Chesterfield Elf Trail

Chesterfield Elf Trail

22nd November until the 4th January

The Chesterfield elves are back in the town just in time to provide fun for the whole family this Christmas.

They’re back out hiding in the windows of our local shops and venues waiting for you to find them!

Santa’s Letter Competition

When you find one of the elves in Chesterfield Town Centre, you can scan the ‘Elf QR Code’ which gives you access to the very special and secret Elf webpages, which we’ve hidden on the Destination Chesterfield Christmas website!

Santa has hidden a letter on each of the pages which spells out a magical word. Collect all the letters, unscramble them and spell out the special Christmas word and and you will be entered into a competition to win an Annual Family Pass for Matlock Farm Park. Fill in the form at the bottom of this page to enter.

Let’s find the Chesterfield Elves. Follow the clues below, go to the location and you’ll find the elves in the window.

The Tremendous Tiff Twist

The Tremendous Tiff Twist is one of the most helpful and knowledgeable elves around! She’s always on-hand to provide the latest local information to anyone who visits Chesterfield and North Derbyshire. Did you know she’s also the tallest of all the elves? You can often find her soaking up a view of the town’s most famous landmark, while making sure anyone getting off the bus knows how to get wherever they need to be!

The Theatrical Melody Musical

When she’s not enjoying the Chesterfield Christmas pantomime, the theatrical Melody Musical loves to spend time with her pets. Sometimes she even teaches her dogs the latest dance routines on Tik Tok! This Christmas, Melody can be found stocking up on treats for her cute little pooches in her favourite new pet shop in the town.

The Victorious Vic Lane

The stylish Victorious Vic Lane always likes to look his best! He can be found trying on the latest ‘Garms’ in Chesterfield’s fabulous independent shops… But there’s certainly no time to be ‘Monkeying’ around as he’s got to pick an outfit to watch his favourite movies on the Big Screen!

The Magical Martin Markets

Always keeping his eye out for a bargain, Magical Martin Markets loves to treat himself to the best food and drink this Christmas, and where better to get it than from Chesterfield’s independent traders? You’ll often spot Martin browsing stalls, before popping inside for a coffee or a bite to eat. Rest assured he’s got everything he needs to prepare a delicious Christmas Dinner for all the other elves to enjoy.

The Princess Pam Pave

The Princess Pam Pave

Princess Pam Pave is always thinking about her loved ones, especially at Christmas time. She always sends Christmas cards to all the other elves to spread the love during the festive season… Although Pam is a little bit sensitive to the winter weather, so she prefers to get all her shopping done indoors where possible!

The Silly Sid Shambles

Silly Sid Shambles

Silly Sid Shambles is seen as the ‘Grandad of the group’ and likes to spend his time in one of the oldest parts of town, buying vintage products from the local independent shops. His favourite hobbies are telling passers-by his best grandad jokes, or getting crafty by working on his miniature models and dolls.
