VIDEO: Elf Hunt at Gunwharf Quays!

Santa has sent one of his cheeky elves to spend Christmas at Portsmouth’s Gunwharf Quays.

As per Christmas tradition, the scout Elf has been tasked with keeping an eye on guests, quietly observing who is being naughty or nice. Throughout December, guests at Gunwharf Quays are invited to come and hunt for the Christmas visitor who is hiding in a secret location within the malls, and of course getting up to his world-renowned mischief!

To celebrate the Elf’s arrival, Gunwharf Quays has launched an official Elf Hunt and is encouraging Elf hunters to take s-Elfies and share them on social media with the hashtag #GWQElf.

Yvonne Clay, Centre Director and Chief Officer of Christmas at Gunwharf Quays, said: “When we arrived at the outlet on 1 December, we were stunned to find one of Santa’s infamous scout elves had moved in overnight. We are incredibly excited at his arrival and have launched the Gunwharf Quays Elf Hunt, inviting guests to seek out his hiding spots. So far the elf has stayed true to his reputation of causing a bit of havoc so we’ll make sure we keep an eye on him during his stay.”

As well as the Elf Hunt, guests to Gunwharf Quays can enjoy seasonal entertainment from local community groups on selected dates along with the Gunwharf Quays Christmas Village.
