LAPLAND CHRISTMAS GROTTO

The bespoke commercial log cabin grotto was built (to our requirements) using moulded fibreglass panels, over real logs to give an authentic, lightweight grotto that can be easily transported to any event. The cabin offers a pine interior (smells just like a real log cabin inside) with fireplace, Chesterfield chair for Father Christmas to sit on and all the lovely decorations inside and out. The cabin has two areas, reindeer transport area (7ft x 8ft), which can be easily converted into an elves workshop should it be required. The grotto area is approx. 12ft x 8ft and will accommodate a family of four and Father Christmas on each visit.

The grotto lighting is battery powered LED lights in the roof, Christmas tree, fire place and on the walls, which creates a lovely warm atmosphere both day and night and reduces any fire risk. Wooden steps are also provided. Once the cabin is on location, the levelling struts on all four corners are erected, making a stable structure. The log cabin is also VOSA inspected and passed for commercial use. Hire cost does NOT include public liability. This can either be added to the hire package or covered by the event committee, who will need to provide an insurance certificate to Reindeer 2 Hire, proving that public liability for the grotto is in place.

CORPORATE EVENTS

Reindeer at any corporate event is an asset, giving a central focus and talking point for your guests and staff, who 99% are still children at heart and really love to stroke and see real reindeer in the boardroom! We have found that the guests relax very quickly and are just as overwhelmed by the presence of these majestic creatures as anyone else who meets them. Give your staff a real treat and hire the reindeer and Father Christmas. You will be amazed at how well they are received!

EDUCATIONAL VISITS

School visits are becoming increasingly more popular. The schools are truly wonderful to visit with the reindeer. After all Christmas is really about the innocence and imagination of children and we try to not only nurture the magic of Father Christmas and his reindeer, but also add to the children’s imagination using the natural behaviour of the reindeer and a sprinkle of magic dust. We incorporate the educational side, such as the physical features, e.g. feet, antlers, fur, etc… alongside the magical elements that children of a certain age want to hear. However, we always respect the requests of the school as to how they would like us to portray the reindeer, although most enjoy both aspects of education and magic to be included.

Just wanted to say THANK YOU for providing such a fantastic attraction for our Dickens Day in Olney! It was a real crowd pleaser! Our little courtyard was jam-packed from the time the reindeer arrived to when they left.

PRIVATE EVENTS

Private venues, such as home, parties, delivering Christmas presents and meeting your family members with photo opportunities are all catered for by Reindeer 2 Hire. There is nothing more magical than a reindeer with Father Christmas knocking on your door to deliver (pre-collected) presents to the children. We can supply a pen in your garden (if accessible and large enough – minimum size 25ft x 25ft) with two reindeer and two elves. Or you can have the whole package of two elves, two reindeer, pen, sleigh and Father Christmas. Bring the magic of Christmas to your door. Create a very special memory for life.

Reindeer at a wedding
I would just like to say a very late and big thank you for attending the Friends of O.S.C.A.R Xmas party with Snowflake she was lovely and all the children and mums and dads loved meeting her. I know she and her helper’s had had a very busy day that day, but was really great to meet her. Thank you once again.
Carol Harrison, Friends of O.S.C.A.R.

CHRISTMAS FAIRS

Fact: Reindeer draw in the crowds to any event. We are very experienced in Christmas Fairs (we regularly work in Central London) in fact we due to our regular attendance at venues such as Hampstead Christmas Fair, we are now deemed part of their tradition! All of our staff are highly conversant on dealing sensitively with the general public and ensuring safety, welfare and control is paramount for both the reindeer and general public whilst on exhibition.

Our mobile pens are just over five foot high to prevent escape of the reindeer and solid in structure to withstand members of the public leaning on the sides. We have attended Christmas Fairs with thousands of visitors and the pens are solid and by far the safest on the market by comparison to other companies. We have never had a reindeer escape or jump out of the pen. We now offer portable hot and cold commercial hand wash systems (venue needs a water supply) to insure health and safety is adhered to. At every event we aim to be fun, knowledgeable, and interactive to create a truly memorable experience alongside injecting the Christmas spirit into the atmosphere and potential customers to the surrounding shops.

Just to say thank you once again for your beautiful animals and fabulous new grotto. You were obviously one of the main attractions of the day and everyone loved having you there. Thank you again for coming along and making our Christmas festival so special with your gorgeous animals. As usual they were the real stars of the show.
