SECRET SANTA SWAP INFORMATION

Before you sign up for the secret Santa swap, please read this part!

A secret Santa swap is an organised gift swap arranged in secret so you do not know who your partner is. When you sign up to this secret Santa swap, you can choose to swap with an adult, a child or both. This means you can buy a gift for another parent/carer, and you will get one in return. You can also buy a gift for a child and get one for your child in return. Or, you can do both!

You will be emailed details of your swap partner but you will not know their name or any personal information.

The budget for each secret Santa gift is £5. You may go over but you cannot buy under. Please be fair and be honest.

SECRET SANTA RULES

You can only sign up for an adult/child swap if you are buying those gifts in return.

Your partner will be randomly selected and please keep in mind that you may not receive a partner with the same age child as yours.

You will not know who you partner is. The only details you will know is how many you are buying for, their sex (if disclosed) and their age.

You must buy, wrap and label your gifts “from secret Santa”

You must bring the gifts along to the party on 15th December at Medieval Mayhem.

Please do NOT sign up for friends, only sign up for yourself and your children.

The gifts you receive in your swap are not related or endorsed by trips with a tot or medieval mayhem.

ONCE I’M SIGNED UP FOR SECRET SANTA – HOW DO I PAY & GET MY PARTY TICKET?

Sign-ups for secret Santa will close on October 20th or as soon as they have all gone (50 forms).

As soon as sign-up is closed for secret Santa, you will be contacted with your partner via email. You will also get another sign-up form which will have names, contact details and any allergen requests for the kids buffet. All of this information will be turned into a party ticket!

Your tickets for the party will then be ready for collection from Medieval Mayhem reception. If there are any remaining tickets 2 weeks before the party after contacting you they will be re-sold.

Please ensure that the children you are signing up for secret Santa swap are attending the party.

At the end of the party you will be able to collect your secret Santa presents from your secret partner from the ‘secret santa’ swap table.

If the partner you get assigned happens to be a friend or someone you know PLEASE DO NOT SPILL THE BEANS!

Your party tickets will have adult and children names on them. You must bring this along to get into the party on December 15th.

I WANT TO COME TO THE PARTY BUT I DON’T WANT TO DO SECRET SANTA.

Priority will go to those who sign up for the secret Santa, as the secret Santa swap is taking place at the party. If there are still remaining sign ups by the secret Santa sign-up deadline (October 20) these will then go to anyone who wishes to come along on a first-come-first-serve basis. Details of this to follow.

Please sign up for the secret Santa. It is so much fun and Christmas is much better when giving. The secret Santa aspect of this party will really set the atmosphere and make it that little bit more fun.

CAN I COME TO THE PARTY ON THE DAY WITHOUT A TICKET?

Unfortunately, no. You will have to have a ticket to come along to the party on 15th December which is taking place in a private function room at Medieval Mayhem. Your party ticket gets you free access into Medieval Mayhem all day, for as long as you like after the party, so please feel free to meet up with friends who are not coming along to the party afterwards.

Medieval Mayhem will not be closed for the party and will take place in a private function room, meaning Medieval Mayhem will be open to the general public as usual.

I JUST DON’T GET IT.
