Elves, Christmas crackers, toy soldiers, a fairy mouse, a clockwork doll, a sweet fairy, a toy robot and a Christmas tree all spring to life in this enchanting festive procession.
Spread a little happiness with our fabulous Christmas procession, featuring dancers, stilt-walkers and a live six-piece band playing festive classics.
The Toy Procession lasts 40 minutes and can be performed up to three times daily, either during the day or specially lit for nighttime events. The full procession features up to 15 performers – but it’s also available for booking without the band, performed instead by 7–9 performers with a battery-powered PA system that can be worn by the dancers.
The procession premiered in December 2022 at the heart of Manchester City Council and CityCo Manchester’s first ever Christmas Parade, before spreading joy to shoppers across the city centre.
A tale of two elves…
Alfie the Dancing Elf, and Sparkle the Christmas Tree Elf. As the festive season comes alive, so do they, popping out from under the Christmas tree, they set off on an adventure with an array of other festive toys; The Christmas Cracker Twins, Roxette the Robot, Winona the Wind-Up Clockwork Doll, Honey the Sweet Fairy and Marjorie the Mouse Fairy.
They are ‘holiday season’ ready and are on their way to see the sights, shopping until they drop and living it up in a town near you…
