Project Elf at Glasgow Fort

It’s not Christmas until you snap all the elfie selfies…Project Elf needs YOU!


Saturday 14 December – Monday 23 December

The elves are taking over Glasgow Fort this Christmas with festive frolics and fun for all the family. Elves big and small will be popping up to entertain, intervene and create a stir wherever they go - your challenge is to spot them!

To kick things off, our real-life comedy elves will be leading laughter-filled Elf & Fitness sessions, at 4pm on 14 December, outside Next, to get everyone fit and elfy for the season ahead.

Boogie along to your favourite Christmas classics in this interactive show that's free for all and open to everyone - elf hats at the ready!

Our real-life elves will then be on a mission to spread joy wherever they go.
Filled with mince pies and mischief, they will sing, dance and joke around, delivering random acts of kindness and Christmas wishes wherever they roam.

Keep your eyes peeled for elves of all shapes and sizes popping up on shelves, in windows and who knows where else.

Have your camera at the ready to snap away and see how many you can spot. Where will they be hiding next? Join in the fun, snap your elfie selfie with any of our elves throughout Christmas, then share with #ElfAtGlasgowFort for a chance to win a £250 Glasgow Fort Gift Card. Terms and conditions apply
