Painswick Naughty Elf Trail from 18 December at 08:00 – 23 December at 16:00.

Painswick's magical (and rather cheeky) Christmas trail is back for 2021! 

Friends of the Croft School have invited a group of naughty Christmas elves to picturesque Painswick for the first week of the school holidays. The Painswick Naughty Elf Trail will run from 18th-23rd December with a £200 John Lewis voucher as the star prize, and it’s specially designed to be Covid-safe whatever level of local restrictions may be in place.

Approximately 20 naughty Christmas elves will be up to all kinds of mischief in window displays around the village. Household groups can follow a map to spot the elves – at any time over the six days. And thanks to generous sponsorship, each trail map purchased brings a chance to WIN THE £200 JOHN LEWIS VOUCHER.

Maps cost just £3 each and can be purchased below. Complete the trail and solve the anagram for a chance to win the £200 John Lewis voucher. Your map will be e-mailed to you at least one week before the event starts. One entry into the draw per map purchased. Multiple maps may be purchased, for multiple entries into the draw.
