Not many people know but, to enable Santa to keep his naughty list up to date Santa's elves spend some of their holiday time, when they are not at the North Pole making toys, amongst the people of the world!
Some of them have become quite famous, Elf-is Presley, Elf A Fitzgerald, Mariah Fairy just to name a few.
Each group of elves brings a radio beacon with them and a few days before Christmas they send a message to the north pole and the reindeers come and pick them up. Booksh Elf and his quiet sister Sh Elf who run the library at the north pole, Yours Elf who usually goes home to Norway for his holidays, Ruude Elf who looks after the welfare of the reindeer and whose nose gives away his love of beer, Hiss Elf from Elfghanistan had all planned to go to Telford this year but, changed their mind and went to Great Snoring instead as they had heard that some residents, had been very naughty and had founded an anti Christmas club.

The elves radio beacon is in the shape of a star and when the time has come, they climb the tallest Christmas tree they can find, place the star at the top and await the reindeer. The elves stored the star in the community centre but when, after the twelfth week in Great Snoring they went to pick it up it was gone. Only a dozen people have a key to the community center and as there were no signs of a break in it must have been taken by one of them.
After comparing the naughty list with the list of key holders the elves have made a list of the 6 suspects.
Can you help the elves find their star? Pull yourselves together and walk a mile in their pointy shoes!
Check the alibis of the six suspects and help identify the malicious malefactor in time to get the elves back to the north pole.

There is not much too it.  It took us 16 minutes to complete, and that's only because the evidence is time-released.  You receive new bits of information at timed intervals.  If we received it all at once we would have been finished in moments, we were waiting around for the next batch of info to come in.  When it arrives, you match the info to the suspects, and then you wait for the next batch to arrive.  OK, It's for charity, it's for charity, it's for charity... 

Reviews by escape room review sites

This won’t keep enthusiasts busy for long, but apparently inexperienced teams often take an hour to finish it. It’s a cute little game with a fun ending and a good option if you’re looking for a festive ‘whodunnit’.
There’s something a little magical about doing what I love – playing escape rooms – and knowing you’re doing it for good and the money you spent is going to a really, really good cause.
