Christmas in Chesterfield

Christmas in Chesterfield Elf Trail

Chesterfield Elf Trail

The Chesterfield elves are having a well earned rest after a busy Christmas period.

They hope that you enjoyed finding them across Chesterfield.

They have contacted the winner of Santa’s competition for the family pass to Matlock Farm Park.

Across Chesterfield town centre from 7 December

The Chesterfield Elves aren’t letting Santa have all the fun this Christmas. They will be popping up across the town centre this December. Look out for them in town centre windows – spot them all and you can enter a competition.

How it works

  1.  The cheeky elves have left some clues below to help you follow their trail.
  2. When you find one of the elves 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.
  3.  You’ll find out more about each elf and you’ll see their special letter.  Collect all the letters – spell out the secret elf word – and you will be entered into a competition to win an Annual Family Pass for Matlock Farm Park.  To enter gather all the letters from the Elf pages, come back here and complete the entry form at the bottom of this page.
  4. You’ll also find discounts and gift guides to shop local and support your local high street this Christmas.
