Elf Trail

The Festive Derby spirit has been spread around the city centre, and a playful family of elves have moved in! Alongside the Window Wonderland displays, see if you can spot the elves in shops and businesses around the city centre – they may be on stickers in windows or shops, or you might even spot one hiding on a shelf. As well as the colourful characters, they've also left their shadows stencilled along the streets. See how many you can find while you visit the wonderful city shops – a great activity for all the family.

While you're enjoying the Elf Trail, look out for some great "s-Elf-ie boards" where you can have your photos taken in front of the characters from some of the festive events. There are also two wonderful art installations to be found – one in the Market Hall, and one outside Derby Museum on The Strand. These have been commissioned specially for the festive season, and created by local artists working with University of Derby and Banks Mill.
