THE StarKidz Christ­mas elves have re­turned to South­port – but this year they have brought a grumpy friend, The Grinch.

Through­out the year, the chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ment com­pany pro­vides en­ter­tain­ment for par­ties and events.

But at Christ­mas time, all the mem­bers turn into mag­i­cal elves.

The chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ment busi­ness has re­turned for the 7th year of fes­tive vis­its, and they have brought the Dr Seuss char­ac­ter The Grinch – who stole Christ­mas in one story – along for the first time.

StarKidz En­ter­tain­ment, is made up of 18 “elves” and cus­tomers can book gar­den vis­its, elf and safety checks and elf par­ties.

Jan Hayes, owner of StarKidz En­ter­tain­ment, said: “We have been do­ing elf vis­its for seven years now, and its by far the most pop­u­lar and mag­i­cal thing we do, and it’s re­ally put us on the map.

“We had over 500 book­ings last year and it’s look­ing to be even more pop­u­lar this year.

“We started by do­ing mag­i­cal gar­den vis­its, where chil­dren hang their Christ­mas let­ters on the wash­ing line and some naughty elves will sneak into the gar­den to col­lect them, all the while play­ing on toys and tram­po­lines, not know­ing they are be­ing watched.

“It’s be­come quite a tra­di­tion in many fam­i­lies now, which is awe­some.

“We also do ‘Elf and Safety checks’ where two elves will come into your home, and make sure it’s safe for Santa’s ar­rival.” This year The Grinch will be out and about.

Jan added: “We are putting a lit­tle warn­ing out with these vis­its, as we don’t know what mood he will be in.

“The aim of these vis­its are to work as a fam­ily to make The Grinch feel fes­tive.

“It’s a very ex­cit­ing time for us, and I’m so happy we are part of so many peo­ple’s Christ­mas now.”

The elves will also be mak­ing an ap­pear­ance at the South­port Christ­mas lights switch-on fes­tiv­i­ties, on Sun- day, Novem­ber 19, in Lord Street.

They will be as­sist­ing CBee­bies TV pre­sen­ter, Alex Win­ters, in en­ter­tain­ing the crowds.

Al­though the com­pany is based in South­port, it takes book­ings from all over the North West in­clud­ing Manch­ester, Chor­ley and Black­pool.
